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 & F 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. With more to come as time & weather permits.

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.

Per your request, I deleted my Memorial. I always search before listing, but this one did not show up. Mabel was my cousin.

RE: Chester Huss
When I saw Mary's obit, I became confused because of what the VA website has. Thanks for checking on that. Red

Annie Stine
My latest Angel is Annie Stine #126384811. My research shows one George Stine & wife as her parents buried in MTCC. Your George fits the build as does his second wife, so I connected them together. Do you want me to transfer Annie over to you and then you can make any corrections? Sincerely, Robert Miller

Joanne, while uploading my Lost Little Angels, I came across her record which list her date of death as February 5th, 1897. You may use it if you want, had I made the memorial, I would have used it. Most people, children included, who died from a contagious disease would have been buried the day of death or within one day. So the dates in the memorial would be correct most likely. And the funeral would have to be family only, so as to not spread the disease. Sincerely Robert Miller
