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,H,I,J, & L 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 & Robert Miller, whose numerous memorials I also manage.

Thank you so much for the edits. Are you related and know more of the family? I am not at all, but was in The Swecker cemetery last summer To get a great aunt's grave photo and took the Logars also. I am attempting to get all I can on Findagrave for their family.

RE: Woodward family
My Woodward family is from England. The only ones here were my great-grandparents and they lived in Lycoming County.

Charles Gehrig # 85089677
Please add this :

The Call of September 15, 1950


The body of Charles S. Gehrig, 23, of 525 Mahantongo Street in Pottsville, a Schuylkill Haven native, was recovered on Sunday at
10:15 in the evening from the first Tumbling Run dam by a crew of searchers after the youth had been missing since 10:30 p. m. Saturday. Grappling hooks were used for seven hours by nearby residents, Schuylkill Haven borough employees and Pennsylvania State Police, to bring the body to the surface. The youth's body was found about five feet from the pier at the west end of the dam in about forty five feet of water. A suicide note was found on the embankment at 3:15 p. m. by Frank Matthews of Port Carbon, and a check at his home proved that Gehrig had not been home on Saturday evening. The note was addressed to Mother, Russell and John and stated, " Everything will end the same sooner or later. It might as well be now. The insurance is for mother. I owe Phil $60. So long Phil, you are a wonderful guy." Charles Gehrig. Russell and John Gehrig are brothers of the deceased.
Jerry Phillips and Francis Phillips of Pottsville; David Nicastro of Mount Carbon and William Nevils of 249 Haven Street and Ike Gehrig of 323 South Garfield Avenue, the latter an uncle of the youth, recovered the body. When recovered, Gehrig's trousers were filled
with rocks and the ankles tied together with a necktie. Investigation as to the boy's motive for suicide revealed that he had been
"studying too hard."
The deceased was born in Schuylkill Haven, a son of Mrs. Hattie Knapp Gehrig and the late John Gehrig. His father died in 1928. He
was a graduate of Girard College in Philadelphia in 1944 and later attended Brown Preparatory School in Philadelphia. He attended the Schuylkill Undergraduate Center from 1948 to 1949 where he was an honor student and editor of the school paper. During the
past summer, he was waterfront director at the YMCA camp. During World War Two he served with the U. S. Navy as radio operator
for two years. He had been employed in the editorial department of the Pottsville Republican for a short time. Funeral services were held on Wednesday afternoon from the Ruch Funeral Chapel in Pottsville at the convenience of the family and burial was made in the
Union Cemetery in Schuylkill Haven. The Reverend Cyril Stone officiated.
