Bio and Links
To whom it may concern, my bio is my bio, I have been a findagrave member for quite a few years. I am not a name collector like others, but I am territorial and would like to be able to place memorials up for people in my area (Ashland, Fountain Springs, Gordon, Girardville, Lavelle, Locustdale)that are in the local newspapers and funeral home websites, but alas I can't, someone from far away keeps putting them up.

If you are going to put memorials up and if the info is provided in the obit (aka-bio), please enter it. Don't just leave the places born & died blank because it is quicker for you to enter them and grab them before someone else does.
Do it correctly or don't do it at all.

I know my area (North of the mountain) of Schuylkill county very well and what I don't know I make sure to find out.

And UPDATE, UPDATE, I am slowly but surely adding cemmie records for a certain cemetery in my area, I have the letters A, B,C,D,E,F,& G done so far.
I have also transcribed the St Paul's Lutheran Cemetery in Middleport, Pennsylvania
Helped with Odd Fellows in Girardville; St Joseph's (Old & New), Ashland; and St Mauritius (Old & New), also Ashland. Sts Peter & Paul, Port Carbon. With more to come as time & weather permits. Upcoming Citizens Cemetery, Lavelle.
Big Thanks to fellow deceased Findagraver- Keith McKain, for entering all the pictures and memorials that you did for me.
If it were not for you entering them for me, those 2700 plus memorials in Schuylkill co area wouldn't be up there now and Big Thanks to FAG, for turning them over to me to maintain.
And also hats off to Tim Gruber, whose numerous memorials I also manage.

Myrtle Carl - Memorial# 44353624
Hi! ... I have a small typo for you. Memorial# 44353624 has a death of 1917 for Myrtle Carl. The photograph shows a death date of 1947, which matches the death year on her death certificate. That's it ... Thank you!

You know, looking thru my data, I have an Elmer Kellerman who was the son of Louis and Elizabeth Lentz Kellerman. They left Ashland and moved to Philadelphia....want to try to find a connection?

Your Family
I noticed your maiden name is Gross. My g-grandmother is Madeline Gross Yeckel from Pittsburgh. I am having difficulty tracing her family. Maybe I will discover we are related some where along the journey.I volunteer to take grave photos in my area. I also document and shoot local cemeteries. Find A Grave cemeteries are at best a mess. Duplicates, miss-information, edits get ignored often. But there are some who go to great lengths to provide correct data. Then the inactive sites are a roadblock. Oh well, we all do the best we can in this ongoing effort to remember our dead. Keep up the good works, great job.

Will you change over ownership of my Thornton family buried in the Odd Fellow cemetery in Girardville. I have some Family information to add ?

William Thornton (107533151)
Thomas Thornton (107533150)

Thanks for your help

RE: Rosie Rebuck
Yes, there are actually 3 listings with one being both Lutheran and Reformed, another Reformed and yet another, Lutheran. I have many ancestors buried there and they are on two different listings. The Lutheran version has only about 50 listings compared to 550 for the other two. It would take a lot of work to correct this mess. Thanks for the reply. Les

Sorry about the duplicate. I deleted my copy but do not know why that cemetery is listed twice. I always check a cemetery before posting and do the posting only to help family tree enthusiasts find their loved ones. Do you know of any way to combine both listings into one?
