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.

I have deleted my memorial as you requested. I am not a name grabber, or numbers person as you eluded to, I just do not want folks like this to go without a memorial. I have to say I did not appreciate your remarks, you, no more than I, own any of these cemeteries or the memorials, we are only the care takers for their families, at least that is how I feel about it. The more people walking these cemeteries, the better, so no one goes unnoticed.

Bryon Dickson Memorial
Hi Joanne,

I am honored to have sponsored such a brave man's memorial. I pray his family can find solace in their memories of their beloved Bryon.

Thank you for adding such a beautiful memorial for him.

God bless you for the wonderful work you do on this fabulous website.

Fondly, Clair

RE: Anderson & Mary Vaughn
Years ago you sent me a picture of a grave with a red box on it saying that's where they were buried. Found out recently Thomas & Mary had another daughter, Kate Brennan.

RE: Paul Paul
Hi Joanne,

I have looked at my online info regarding Paul Paul and I don't have him or his family in my online files. I can only think the info came from another family member and I took the picture when I was in Ashland visiting. I will have to see if I can find the disk with the other family members info (which isn't always correct).

RE: Roy Smith & Thelma Kiehl
It would be nice if you could tell me your connection to these people. You ask a lot of questions but I don't know who you are.

RE: Roy Smith & Thelma Kiehl
Joanne, I only know that Roy Smith died in 1990. I have only identified one child for them: Roy, Jr. The couple divorced sometime in the 1930s. She used her maiden name in the 1930 census. Thelma remarried to Albert Wallis Fisher on May 13, 1936. Thelma and Albert had two children: Nancy and Albert.
