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.
Hugs & Thanks to Peggy Scully who is up there in Heaven now, I'll take care of your memorials.
And also hats off to Tim Gruber & Robert Miller whose numerous memorials I also manage.

McCoy Visit to Girardville on October 15, 2016
Hello: We're Peggy's McCoy cousins. My family will be in Girardville on October 15, 2016 to visit the graves of the McCoys, Roachs, and Leonards who are buried at Old St. Joseph's Cemetery. It would be great if they could meet some Girardville folks. Hope you'll see them at the Hibernian House. God bless Peggy's kind soul.
Love, Colleen McCoy
