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 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.

PFC Emerson Isaac Hughes (#141208286)
I accepted your entry on the date of death. Would you mind letting me know the source. I am writing a book on the 318th Field Hospital which Private Hughes served? Thanks in advance, Thomas

Thank you for the correction on Mr Portie's memorial. I read your Bio and I agree 100 percent about entering memorials. I want my memorials to be as complete as I can make them.

Thanks again,

Joanne...hope you don't mind...I added a photo I took the other day for the Suhanicks in Transfiguration Cemetery. I was there looking for some relatives. I took some photos for photo requests and then took some extras around my relatives. If you don't like the photo, feel free to delete it. No problem.

Zimmerman @ St. Pauls
Thanks for your note about Marion L. (Keller) Zimmerman. I've added a link in the bio to her actual burial location (with William R. Price). Will contact the Admins to have her memorial at St. Paul's ECC Cemetery marked as a Cenotaph.

RE: Re- Preputnick
Hi! Thanks for the offer, but no need, you did a great job. My great-grandmother's name was Preputin, so I always thought there might be a connection with this family but it must have been in Europe a long time ago. Thanks, Bill
