This is great! I've been looking for more info and history on Schuylkill Co. We just returned from there on our first visit to the area and met some of my husband's cousins for the first time. My father-in-law was born & raised there (Mahanoy City, New Philadelphia, Pottsville, Port Carbon) We did find the grandparents graves in St. Casimir's Cemetery, St. Clair. Everyone in the County was so helpful to us and we enjoyed talking with so many people. Keep up the good work and will keep checking in with your site. The surname Braukus, Broka, or Brokas, etc. has been a challenge to research. Best of luck, JB

Hi to Phillip & Jean! I was born in Zion Grove, North Union township. Am the Historian for the CROLL's from there, and assisting the FOOSE reunion historians. I have an EXTENSIVE database (in BK5) of Union Township Penna. German families (Crolls,Fooses,Fritz's,Herrings,Rarigs,Stauffer's,Lutz's,Singley's...) Would love to share & add to my family links. LOVE you "St.Pauls (White Church) Cemetery" book. Have two copies, one for keeps and one that is already well marked up as I link people in! QUESTION: Saw in a 1994 clipping that my cousin gave me, and article on you all and the White Church. I have uncovered the full details of the Jacob Croll (who died in battle near Richmond, in the civil war) and is buried there. May be the stone m rked "J.C.", but also likely that he only got a wooden cross (very poor mother). How do I go about getting a marker errected to honor him? SECOND QUESTION: In same article, you state the Jonas Gottschall, who owed land where Foose/Gottschall cemetery is, was "son-in-law" of Conrad Foose. I am VERY active in this cemetery association. We "Foose's" know next to nothing about the whole Gotts hall line. Which of Conra's daughters was Jonas married to? And who might be able to help me with Gottschall history? Great site, I'll be visiting often, hope to be able to make some major contributions! Larry

I had family living in Shenadoah until at least 1884. The surname is Wheelihan. James W. Wheelihan and Julia Knowles Wheelihan had eight children who were baptised at Annunciation BVM Catholic Church. Julia and the eight children migrated to Grass Valley, California in 1884. I have little information on James W. Wheelihan. He did not make the trip to California. Any information, ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I enjoyed visiting the Website and was pleasantly surprised and honored that some of my research was included. By the way, did you know that the Hubble Space Telescope has now scientifically proven once and for all that Shenandoah is the Center of the Universe?

Much of the family history on both sides of my family is in Schuylkill County. All were Welsh immigrants and all in either Schuylkill or Lackawanna counties. I plan to visit often and contribute if possible. Thanks for your good work.
