Im extreamly angry over my recent experience with the Herald Standard news paper! We ordered letters from Santa through them and did not receive them! Thousands of letters we not even mailed out! We were told that it didn't matter if they were recived late! It does matter. It will ruin my childrens christmas and a family tradition.
If you orded a letter too, prepare to be dissapointed. I hope that everyone that reads this will resond to the paper like I did. I made it clear to them how upset I was through their web site. M balentine

Hello.

I was Googling for other reasons and I came upon this discussion group. I saw my grandfather, Mario Colelli, mentioned along with his shoe store. My brother and I would go to his shop and pound shoe nails into the wooden counter, with no complaints from Nonno. We bought candy at Perilla's drug store, and I saw my first movie for 75 cents at the Karolcik theater. (It was Karolcik's, wasn't it? I remember the grocery store, too.)

We loved the pizza at the Son's of Italy.

Anyway, cheers to all of you in Perryopolis!

Regards,

I'm interested in contacting anyone who can help me with Sisley family genaeology. My grandmother, Margaret Lavinia Sisley, grew up in the Perryopolis area back in the late 1800's, and was the daughter of James Sisley, and granddaughter of Ellis William sisley who was married to Margaret (nee. Sisley) Sisley.

My Dad, Edward Filchock, recently passed and I came to Perryopolis for his funeral. Thank you to all who came to see him. It was nice, again, as always, to see Perryopolis. ...always feels like coming home. Also, Dad's resting place; where he wanted to be. To all those who knew my Dad, as you know, he was an example of goodness and strength to all in the kindness he showed to everyone and his faith in God. His legacy will be remembered by many.

Just visited Perryopolis this past Tuesday.. Came back on a very sad note. A dear friend, Tom Elliot, was brutally murdered last friday, march 9th, 2007. Tom and I were classmates at Frazer (class of 1970). We were close friends until I moved away.. At first, like all good friends, we attempted to stay in touch but it was difficult.

Now that he's gone, I truly wish I had paid more attention to him and made it a point to make the trip back more often to see him. But that's hindsight at this point.

Take time to stay in touch with old friends,,, It's a lesson learned...

Dear Webb Master, I found your site while looking for info about the coalmines. You see my father worked in coal mines as a Mule driver and later as a Motorman, I also lived in a coal camp as a young man. I love the mountains. and visit often. ileft for the flat lands. For a better life.Im glad did. I think your right on target.
It wasn't easy making a living in a coal camp. I also think this country is headed down hill like a snowball headed for you know where. They have sold the working class out. Things are looking Grimm. great site. keep up the good work.

Hello Perryopolis,
With the death of our President GEARLD FORD, your area played a big part in his life. As we know he was born Leslie King, he was also the great greatgrandson of JOSIAH KING who had a warranty of land in Franklin Twp, Fayette Co Pa. from 1828 and lived in that area until his death in 1891. I am am also the greatgranddaughter of JOSIAH KING. I have researched and documented this family and would like to hear from my King relatives.

I found your site looking for something about coal mining accidents to use in a safety meeting at my job. I work in a open pit coal mine in north east texas. Your site made a very interesting and historical look at how coal mining has evolved through the decades.

Greetings, My friend Harry and I briefly visited your town on a bike trip from Perryopolis to Confluence and back. We met Eldo and some other guys at the pavilion setting up for a party. They graciously allowed up to park the truck by the tractor shed for the day.
You have a nice town and great friendly people there and we appreciated you allowing us to park there. We felt much better leaving the truck at the park rather than at the lot by the trail.
The pavilion is very nice as well. We're going to have to plan another stop there when we ride the bike trail from the Burgh to DC next fall
Thanks to all and especially to Eldo. Hope the celebration was a success. Happy 25th and here's to many more!!!

It's not a "person" that's doing the spamming -- in a sense. By
that I mean that it doesn't come from a person sitting at a
computer, finding The Grist Mill Bulletin Board, and then typing
his spam. The spammer simply has a "bot" (short for robot.)
That's a piece of software that crawls around the Internet
looking for bulletin boards and automatically posting
spam. Any human can read the message that announces the
login name and password, but the 'bot cannot. A spam 'bot can
post millions and millions of messages a day in that way. Thus
far I have been able to block the text of the spammer's message,
but not the attempt. I may have to look into newer bulletin
board software that is aware of this type of attack. I don't look
forward to that, because setting up a BBS is not a trivial task.

Meanwhile, you may also see some weird looking posts from me
as I test different things. I'll delete them ASAP, but I can't
guarantee that no one will see them.

Thank you!

Ed,
My Grandfather Harry Falbo was painting that bridge when the scaffold chain broke. He was killed. This was in 1937. The newspaper account said: "The Bridge was acquired by Fayette County from the Washington Run Railroad at the time it passed out of existance. Since that time it had been used for automobile and pedestrian traffic."
If someone does not point you to the exact time, I would think you could find some answers at the court house.

Anyone know when the bridge across the Yough, at Layton, that connects with the tunnel, was changed from a railroad bridge to auto traffic. After being down there a few times taking pictures, I came to the conclusion that the remains of a spur off of what I think is the Conrail railroad, lines up perfictly with the road to the bridge. Also the fact that the bridge is single lane seems to be another clue. Just curious. Ed

I too remember the Dik Greene Trio, or Satin Sounds that they also went by. The accordian player was also my favorite too. I saw them at numerous weddings and functions throughout the area. VH1 should do a "Where are they now?" or a "Behind the music", honoring local talent. They had a catchy tune tune called "Shut'da door" which always brought a smile...

We have been to Perryopolis twice trying to find the grave site and anything we could regarding Samuel Shreve-one of the co-founders of Perryopolis. At Uniontown, we found his will and several Perryoplis land transactions. But we failed to find his grave. His daughter,Sophia, married William Bice and came to Monroe County,(1829), Michigan and died there. William was a soldier from Fayette county, PA. during the War of 1812 and spent some time at Fort Meigs,Ohio.

I am trying to findout information on the "Rynkiewicz" or "Rynkewitz" brothers who emigrated into the U.S. around the turn of the 19th century. Here is the list:

Josef/Jussas/Joseph Rynkewitz in 1905 was residing at 472 New Market St., Wilkes-Barre, PA

Antoni Rynkewitz (Rynkiewicz) 15 Dec 1902 headed for freeland, PA. traveled with an Antoni Chemielewski and a Joseph Bielski.

Jan Rynkewitz (Rynkiewicz) emigrated on 16 Jul 1905 and was headed to 472 New Market St., Wilkes-Barre, PA to be with his brother Joseph Rynkewitz.

Vincenty Rynkewitz (Rynkiewicz) emigrated on 2 Oct 1905 and was also headed to 472 new Market St., Wilkes-Barre, PA to be with his brother Joseph Rynkewitz.

At this point I am looking for information on Joseph and Vicenty as to who they were married to and what were their childrens names? The home is still standing at 472 New Market St., in Wilkes-Barre, PA as I was there on Oct 31, 2005 and took pictures of the home for my research book.

Regards,

John J. Rynkiewicz (The Grandson) JJRynk@hotmail.com

Also, has anyone ever heard of there being an old village near Layton, after you go thru the tunnel from Perryopolis and over the bridge. I heard that at the end of the bridge on the left side down by the river, there used to be old log cabins and people would always find artifacts and so forth.

Thanks!

Well, it's been a few days since I was back in Perryopolis for my 35 Class reunion and I have had time to reflect back on some things I noticed. First let me say that Perryopolis is just as beautiful as it was the day I moved away in 1973.

In fact, it even looks nicer to me now. I stopped at the drug store to get some TUMS....(I had a great lunch at Randles,,but it got to me a little Ha ha!) Noticed that they took out the soda fountain,,,boy I was really looking forward to a cherry coke...the ones out of the bottle just don't get it done for me.

My parents home is now owned by Mike Matras and family...Mike says he did alot of work on it...Someday, I'm stopping by Mike,,,show me around please.

I got a chance to drive around town and I noticed that everyone (for the most part) still takes very good care of thier homes and lawns...Typical small town I guess, except that for some reason, everything looked just so wonderful to me cause it was my home town.

Had a great time at the Reunion...Thanks Tina, Mike, Doris and the rest of you. Saw some real good friends and really missed those that couldn't make it. (I should name everyone,,but let's not get silly here :) )

I gotta tell you all, if you get a chance to go back and visit,,,do so, you won't be sorry...What a great place to be from and from the looks of it,,,,still a great place to live..

My grandfather was born 2/7/1881 in Barren Run, Pa. and married Lucy Kate Fuller from Layton. Her birthdate was 7/18/1882 and they both died in 1971.

I guess I got lucky because I seem to be related to everyone up there.(Timko, Rabatin,Bryner,Morris,Saxon,yeah I can cover alot) It was kind of upsetting to see that the only person that I know I am related to that posted anything was my step dad.

Bloody Harlen, Ludlow, Mattewan, and the Battle of Blair Mountain are all legends of labor history, yet the 1927-1928 Strike in the western Pennsylvania coalfields merits only a paragraph whenever a rare reference can be found.

The strike involved 150,000 miners and their families who where put out of their homes, denied civil rights, and subjected to extreme brutality at the hands of Coal and Iron Police. Early on two films were made about the strike, one a documentary, The Miner’s Strike with actual footage, the other based on a rewritten screenplay by the Honorable Judge Michael Mussmano from Pittsburgh and released as Black Fury in 1935. Both were heavily censored and ultimately banned. Thousands died, yet due to pressure by the industrialist controlled government, the strike was "swept under the rug!" The events were censored into oblivion until BUCKET OF BLOOD THE RAGMAN’S WAR.

BUCKET OF BLOOD, THE RAGMAN’S WAR by R. S. Sukle is a fast paced, meticulously researched, historic novel about the strike. The action focuses on the town of Russellton located in the coalfields north of Pittsburgh. Russellton became known as a “bucket of blood” during the strike because of the bloodshed that occurred in the fight for a workers’ union. Set against a background of newspaper articles, the narrative chronicles the depravation and indignities suffered by the families in the Russellton camps and nearby towns at the hands of Coal and Iron Police brought into the area by the governor to evict them from their homes and keep out relief workers and organizers.

I was just browsing on the net and ran across this site. It's amazing to me to see some of the pictures from my home town. Funny, but the more things change, the more they stay the same. What a beautiful town.

It's a real credit to the community that they were able to keep the town so beautiful. I would love to see more pictures. Hopefully, I can make it back there again someday.

I was born in Uniontown hospital and at the age of 7, my family moved to Perropolis, Pa. My father, Salvatore (most everyone called him Sal or Sam, I never really understood the Sam thing)owned a Shoe Repair shop on the main street leading up from Rt51. We were right next to what used to be the Perryopolis Fire Station.

I think Mike Matras and his family live in our old home. Or at least they did for a while!

My father passed away in 1983 but Mom is still kicking at 78. Would you believe she goes ball room dancing a couple of times a week...Geez!

I graduated from Frazier in 1970, moved to the Cleveland Ohio area in 1973 and now reside in Aurora, Ohio.

Hope to hear from some old friends.. Feel free to write and let me know how you are all doing.

I was born in Perryopolis - 8-17-35. My mother was a Herspold. (Elizabeth) I grew up in Whitsett & Perryopolis. My grandparents were Alex & Mary Herspold. The school I attended in Whitsett was a one room affair with all the grades. The eary grades in the front rows and the higher grades in the back. My great grandparents were Frank & Rose Lukacs. They owned a farm that was large on the east side of town. They had cow, pigs & chickens. My brother is Richard G. Reed, he lives in Grove City, Pa. I remember those days with great fondness. My Aunt Martha Herspold and Cousin Timmy Herspold still reside in Perryopolis. The Pioneer Days celebrations provide an opportunity to see old friends and have a wonderful time.

Hi Perry,
Thanks to my cousin Mike Kromer for suggesting that I check out this site. I never would have imagined that the internet would bring my old hometown into my Florida livingroom. I grew up on a farm between Perryopolis and Star Junction, so it was nice to see photos and info from both little towns. I went to the elementary school in Star Junction and St. John the Baptist School and am A 1972 graduate of Frazier. I would love to hear from anyone who might remember me as "Cindy Guth".

I am looking for ANYONE that graduated from Frazier or Geibel in (and around) '81. I found an old e-mail address for Tommy Oldham (I mean Thomas! :o) and one from Michelle Statzula but that's it!!!

Where did everyone go??????????????????? I would enjoy hearing from any school (St. John's, Frazier or Geibel) friends.

This book is about Colonial Mines.......my grandfather was killed at Braznell on December 23, 1899 so my roots are in coal mining like a lot of people from Fayette & Westmoreland County. I think anybody from the area would find the book fascinating.

Hello everyone in the town of Perryopolis!!

This is really a great page!! The fall pictures of the town brought back to me so many beautiful memories.
I am from Japan and had spent one year in Perryopolis as an exchange student in 1993-94. I attended Frazier High as a senior and enrolled in the marching band and played alto sax. My first host family was Mr. and Mrs. Hassibi, and second family was Mr. and Mrs. Staggers. Together with my host families, the friends I had made in Frazier helped me greatly to make my life in the US so joyful, comfortable, and unforgettable.
I would like to thank all the people who gave me such delightful moments in my life. Your warmth and kindness will always stay in my heart. I am hoping to visit there again someday when I get a chance.

Happy Holidays to All!!
Yoshika Hirata - Class of 94

I remember the day that Perry High was changed to Mary Fuller Frazier Memorial Jr. Sr. High School. That used to knock peoples' socks off when I would tell them where I graduated in 66. I also remember all the teachers crying in the hall way as I returned to the main building from health class when President Kennedy was shot. I still have my class ring but have lost all my school albums over the years of moving (Pa. to Colorado Springs to Pa. to Florida to Pa and now to New Mexico). I often wonder if some of my old pals are still roaming the streets back there; and to all of you that I was a jerk to, I humbly apologize. Great web site. I'll return soon.

I left after graduation for the USAF with Ed Sisley and have returned only for visits with my folks and one class reunion. (would have liked to have seen a (40th). I worked at Randall's Resturant for a couple years and remember all the good friends there. Both of my parents passed away in 2001, they lived in the Parish House, St. Johns. My brother still lives in Dawson. It's nice to be able to view the messages and pictures and I plan to check in often. If any of the old friends wish to contact, would like to hear from you.

Hi all I am a life long perry girl. My mom is known as Bonnie Blair. I just wanted to say Thanx soooooooo much for this wonderful site. I worked a summer in the museum with Joanie and even being a teenager fell in love with the town all over again. I moved away for a short time but I had to come home....missed small town living too much. All the people that say this town is the best they are so right. I now have 2 small children and wouldnt want to raise them anywhere else. I feel safe sending my kids to school at perry elementary. But most of all I feel safe at night in my home, not many people in this world can say that. Thanx for a great hometown and a great hometown webpage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What a great site! Brought back many precious memories. My grandparents, Mike and Susie Uhall, lived next door to June Rolison in the late 1960's. Before June moved in, the Kosisky (think I spelled it right) family lived there. And I know my mother, Peggy Uhall Kendall, remembers the Victoria Swamprats!!! She will flip when she sees "perryopolis.com". I'll gladly pass along any messages to my mom from old friends or classmates. Will try and find some interesting new-old photos for the webmaster.

I'm very happy to find this site. My grandparents, both maternal and paternal are from Fayette county. My paternal grandfather, Francis Sylvester Monahan, from northeast Pennsylvania, lived in Dravosburg while my grandmother Anna Cecelia Nassamer lived in Wick Haven. They were married on 28 November 1906 in Perryopolis at St. John The Baptist Church. My maternal grandfather, Joseph Francis Whitehouse, was born in Leisenring. Needless to say, I'm planning a trip to Perryopolis soon.

This is a great site. Your web master does a teriffic job keeping the site up-to-date.
Perryopolis, Rt 51 could use some PenDot informational and directional signs that inform tourist of the numerous historical sites in the area. The streets just before the circle need the same signage to get people to those sites. The reverse side of those signs need signage to lead tourist back to Rt 51. Signs are also need to direct bikers to the Yough River Trail access at Layton and Whitsett. The trail should also have signs at those locations encouraging bikers to visit the many historic sites in Perryopolis. I can only imagine how tourism and tourism dollars would increase providing tourist could find the their way around.

This is a wonderful web site. I've enjoyed my travels about the world since leaving home in 1972, but it's great to return from time to time to reminisce. And like many folks who've moved away, going back in person is often difficult, which makes this site such a valuable substitute for actually being there. I recognize a lot of the people who have left messages in the guest book, and I saw several of them this past summer when my wife and I made the trip for my 30 year class reunion. I look forward to getting back again in the not too distant future.

I have enjoyed viewing this site. It brings back many memories, since I spent my early years in town, moving to the farm when I was 10 years old. Graduated in 1954, when known as PLTJHS. My roots go back at least 4 to 5 generations in this historic Town made famous by many people who were born here, were residents, or visited here. Would we still have a Perryopolis if the Father of our Country had not recognized its potential, invested his money, and purchased a few thousand acres for a business venture in a remote wilderness, that many of us today still call HOME? To read the message board and see a name and recall a person or family I knew gives me a warm feeling, and remberance of the good times that was had by not me alone, but many others. In closing, I know not many who can say "My home town is on the Internet."

How wonderful to be able to converse with friends and old neighbors! My Sister, Hallie Rolison Robertson. told me about this site. My older sister, June Rolison, lives in Perryopolis now. She was the school nurse at Frazier for many years. My father was on the council that was in charge of the money left by Mary Fuller Frazier.
I loved growing up in Perryopolis and yes, we had great teachers. I'm not sure there is that kind of dedication to the profession today. I graduated in 1952, if there are any friends out there, Hi. quarta52@aol.com

Very nice site! Although I didn't grow up in Perry Township, I love it here now and wouldn't live anywhere else. But I was close by; I lived in German Township, not too very far away.

Terrific site! Agree with "ole buddy" Ron Enos we had great teachers at Perryopolis. Still live in area and visit Perryopolis often. Good town, good people, good memories...

It was great to see so many people past and present interested in our home town again. I hope other friends and family visit this site. It is great.

Thanks for the memories. I looked thru' the old guest book and saw lots of names I recognized. You folks are doing a wonderful job and thanks for keeping up the good work. Graduated with the famous class of 1957. Didn't have a bad teacher, all were great people. A couple of stories---Mickey Mucci was just a young fellow teaching our 10th. grade History class and as good looking as he was, the girls all swooned. Mickey coached with Don Mains and could run backwards faster than anyone could run forward. Ed Yeash was at our last class re-union and really looked good. I was very sad to hear of my good buddy Jim Newmeyer passing. He was a great guy and never missed our class reunion. Mickey also has been a good friend to the class of 1957, we appreciate him always attending the reunion. Don Mains was there last year too. It's hard to believe how wonderful these teachers look, hardly ageing at all. Those were the days and we'll be reliving them next fall (2002) at the 45th. class reunion.

Hi to all, we'll be in the area in August.

So long,

Ron Enos (ronaldenos@aol.com)

My brother Melvin made me aware of this website, so I thought that I would visit it to see if there was anyone out there that I went to high school with. Your website is "top shelf".

Sorry to hear of the problem that you had with the old guest book. It takes all kind. I visit the Perryopolis Site two or three times a week and enjoy it very much. I have also been in touch with some old friends through the site. Keep up the good work.
