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 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.

RE: St Joseph's Cemetery, Ft Springs
I note that the cemeteries are two separate cemeteries and the descriptions are transposed.

Child Dunleavy
Hi Joanne, You have three "little angels" listed under Dunleavy #84467183 I was checking the 1910 census in Mt. Carmel/Kulpmont for John Dunleavy and his wife Margaret and the children's first names are all listed in the census. There are two John Dunleavy/Dunleaveys in the census it is the one that includes Rose Dunleavy born 1897 age 13 #140999417 I am related to her son Joseph.

RE: Wittman/Pennypacker
Hi Joanne, you are right, there are two spellings, Wittman and Whitman. I have found official records (1880 Census and New York Passenger lists) with both spellings. So like most of my ancestors, the would change the spelling of their names whenever they wanted to. Thanks for the heads-up. I will make note of the variance.

RE: Recent obits
Hi Joanne,
I'm getting those from a subscription I have to I'm mostly concentrating on our extended Hepler family and forwarding those related obits along when I find them. Thanks for updating the memorials. Take care,
~ Marilyn

Price family

I DID contact the individuals (Grave Hunters)some time ago to tell them that the Price family are direct descendants of my grandfather, and since I had the additional information added to my entries, could they please transfer or delete their entries. I received no reply.
