Your Web site is wonderful, and it just gets better! The hard work you put into maintaining this site is much appreciated, as is the generosity of the many contributors who are willing to do lookups, or share information. After visiting Frackville and using this page, I can say that Schuylkill people reall are the best. My Schuylkill roots are as follows: my great-grandfather Henry Owens emigrated to Minersville, served in the Civil War, married Sarah (Lloyd?), and worked as a miner.

I am searching two sides of my family, Tarquini and Ditchey. My grandfather John Tarquini came to this country, with his mother and father, from Italy, in 1906 and settled in Mahanoy City. On the Ditchey side, my great-grandfather Charles Ditchey was sh riff of Schuylkill County in 1913. I am seeking any information, such as campaign information, photgraphs or campaign memorabilia such as buttons or posters, surrounding his election and tenure in office. Ideally, I would like to locate and, if possible cquire, his sheriff's badge used while he was in office. His grandparents Jacob and Wilhelmenia Ditchey settled in Middleport in the 1850's. Jacob was killed in a mineing accident around 1855 and was buried in or near Middleport. Wilhelmenia died in 1905 and is also reported to be buried in Middleport. I have been unsuccessful in locating either of there graves and would appreciate any assistance you can offer. Wilhelmenia's death record references the Middleport cemetery, however the only cemetery in Mi dleport is on old Rt. 209, and I found no grave markers for them there.

I have spent many a wonderful summer in Gordon Pa in the late 50's and early 60's My grand parrents, Raymond B. Smith and Almeda Bensinger Smith lived right next to the school where In the summer we would do arts and crafts .......and then hop on the bus o Berry's Dam to go swimming. On rainy days I would go down to the butcher shop and watch the stream turn bloody red. Mertz's Market was right across the street.....we had penny candy for breakfest, lunch and dinner. The Block Parties were always fun. Gr at times were had by my two sisters (ELLYN and Nanci) and I, times I will never forget.
