I just want to say hi to all my family that still lives in Connellsville, HI ALL... I miss everyone and home too... Theres no place like home, however, there are times when you can't go back.. I now live in Washington State, have a very good job, raised my two children, now have 3 grandchildren.. I graduated with the class of '69, yes the last name is still the same.. Nathan, and others there who have his point of view, nothing has changed, and it is not any different anywhereelse, you only have more problems in bigger cities. Being bored is just an excuse to do drugs and drink, I know I have been there but no more. To all, life is what you make it.... So get off your duffs, there are a lot of activities you can do that are free, go for a nice long walk, take a ride on the beautiful bike trail I here you have back there, visits friends and play some games, talk on the phone for hours, do odd jobs and make some money so you can go to a movie, or even save it and buy some stocks, or go to college..There, I stated my opinion...

Did any one notice that those who leave C'ville seem to do well? I did well, went back and suffered for 2 years, left again, got high tech stock options in the 90's and am doing really well now. I didn't want to leave, but there hasn't been good jobs there since the 60's. Nothing new Nathan! You'd be a loser in any town... Hi, Marta. Good to see your entry. I still have the fire extinguisher you gave me. CD

I lik to say Cville isnt a bad place to live because your so close to everything like Pittsburgh and alot of outdoor activities in the area. so i think if they want Cville to thrive they need to bring more opprotunity into the area for younger people to want to stay in the area

Please contact me with any information on this family or anything on either church. Thank you in advance!

Hello to all who know me; I wish you well. To those who don't hello! While reading messages on this site I can't help but say quit blaming others for your own mistakes, we all make mistakes in life and hopefully learn from them. We all have choices to make, and if we all take responsibility for our own actions we each will grow and become better people for them. Quit blaming others and get on with your life! Today is the first day of the rest of your life; have this day mean something. Do something for someone else for a change. Be safe! Shelly "Michelle" Hi Rick and Trini and Marta

Nice site, very informative. I was born and raised in Rowes Run, our coal mine was Colonial Nice site, very informative. I was born and raised in Rowes Run, our coal mine was Colonial #3, on the other side of the County. I liked coming to Connellsville, my mother used to catch the train from there to Wilmington, Delaware where I would pick her up, she said it was always an adventure. As a kid, I went to Redstone High School, class of 1964, you might no believe it, but we had to come to Connellsville to take our driving test.

Thanks for making this webpage, both my parents are from Connellsville. They dated in HS and met up again after Korea and got married! My mother is Beverly (BB) Ann Baughman and my father is James Ross Cypher. My Aunt is Jean Baughman and my Uncle is David Baughman. They still live near Pittsburgh. My grandfather owned Baughman's Garage and they had a trucking company that hauled TNT during the war. They ran the garbage trucks for the city dump... they have lots of stories about the war. Rationing, blackout drapes, air raid wardens, scrap drives, etc... my Uncle used to drag race at Heidelberg Speedway. Pictures of his old hot rods can be seen here:

Dear Webmaster, I am searching my uncle's gravesite. Most probably near Connellville in Owensdale PA, where he died in 1914, 25 years old. He came from Germany 3 years before, and worked in Connellsville or Uniontown as an architect or a constructing engineer. We did find that Owensdale had two small family cemeteries, but they are no longer in existence due to strip mining in the 30's. Can anybody tell me how Owensdale looked like or something about the small cemeteries before strip mining? Or are there any fotos of the little village from that time? Or any traces of Paul? My uncle's name was PAUL MARNACH. Thank you very much indeed! Marlies Niehues-Marnach, Germany

I grew up on the North End of town and attended school at Second Ward Elementary on Highland Avenue. As a kid, my friends and I would often go on long hikes following the railroad tracks that ran alongside the banks of the Yough River. My family moved to the Southside in 1966. I lived there until I graduated from CAHS in 1972. I often think about how beautiful Connellsville and the surrounding area was during the fall months. That has always been my favorite time of the year in Western Pennsylvania.

I guess I was just plain lucky. I had the beach, dances, movies, bowling, hikeing, bikeing, pick -up baseball, football, and just hanging out on friday and saturday nights with my friends at the local pinball palace and dances. And least I forget I delivered the courier for several years, and sold the Pittsburgh Saturday paper on Friday Nights on Brimstone Corner. I was not a jock or even part of the " in crowd " but I figured it out, and if I could so can most anyone else. So Nathan go for it my man as long as it's safe, ethical, and leagal.

In response to the note from Nathan Nicklow, I see his side of the story. It can be tough being a kid and keeping busy. But it's a two-way street Nathan. Take the energy you have stored up and go out and knock on doors and offer suggestions as to how Connellsville can improve. Attend a City Council meeting, make the mayor hear your concerns. But also realize that it is not up to the populace to keep you entertained. You have to meet them halfway. I have a 17 year old and a 14 year old, and both are quite happy. No, they don't live in Connellsville, but in Meadville, which also has its problems. They network with their friends and get together for dinner, go for bikerides (and you have that gorgeous bike trail there!!)and play a pickup game of football. Use your imagination Nathan, and you will figure something out. But don't wait for someone else to do all of the work for you. You can bring about change for the better. I lived in an even smaller town, Dunbar, for five years, though I grew up in Connellsville. My time in Dunbar is among the best of my life, because of the people. So, go to it, and good luck!

Well Nathan, your mom made a point. There is much to do in your town...... if you like participating in sports. She listed no fewer than 12 sporting activities. So, if you aren't athletic, or if you don't like camping, you still have nothing to do. Joe was right. ASK the youth what they want to do. Perhaps some might like community theatre, or performing community service. Nothing unlocks self-focusing attitudes like service, and it instills caring and pride in those who render it. All the great activities Nathan's mom listed just might not suit everyone. And these are the kids who fall through the cracks. We have to stop worshiping athletes and thereby ignoriging those who just might be good at something else that is not supported by local government programs or the schools. What percentage of the taxes go towards the arts for the teen-agers? One of the first things to be cut in school districts that are running on a new tighter budget are the arts. Never would anyone think to cut out the football, softball, or basketsball programs. So.... if a child is not into those things, too bad. In other words, opportunities need to expand to meet the needs of those who don't care to make their mark on the world by kicking, dunking, pitching or hitting a ball around.

I was just reading the comment from Nathan's mom. While I agree 100% with what she is saying, there remains a problem. Over half of the activities mentioned take money and transportation. How many parents in Connellsville today can afford this? How many are willing to give up their time to transport their kids to these types of activities? Most of the working parents both work full time jobs, that leaves only evenings and weekends. Playgrounds are great for younger children, but I don't know of too many kids 16 and over that go. I lived in Connellsville 6th grade and on. 1959 through 1969. Think back. We had no computers, no video games..television was for evening watching if we were lucky enough to have one. Drugs were almost unheard of up until the mid sixties. We played outside all day during the summer as we got older we went to the local dairy bar for cokes and to mingle with our friends, we swam in the river, we rode bikes until we got our drivers license, the Youth Center held did the Polish Club, Slovak Club, and S. C'ville firehall. No alcohol was available and if someone showed up drunk, they were made to leave. Times have changed..we use videos and computers to babysit our children (and they wonder why children are so overweight today) are bored, they need stimulation in their lives while they are young, parents who are willing to spend time with them, and activities that interest them. Is there is solution? I wish I had one. Why not ask the teens of Connellsville what they want? I only go to Connellsville now to visit my parents graves. I always drive through town and am saddened to see so many young people just hanging out, doing nothing, boredom written all over their faces. I'm not blaming's the same here. If we don't do something positive for our young people, what kind of adults will be running this country in the not so distant future? Please sit down with your kids and talk to them, ask them what they would like to see done to improve their lives, then put these ideas before your local government. You have some great people leading your town now.. they will listen.

Just wanted to let you all know that Connellsville has what I consider much to offer teens. Let me name a few: Ice skating, roller skating, hockey, swimminng, local basketball courts, tennis courts, local baseball and softball teams, karate schools, dance schools, youth activities associated with many churches such as youth retreats, teen camps, outings, overnight lock-ins, etc. Also there is a nautilus gym, racketball, brand new YMCA and I could go on and on. Now, does this sound so bad? I wonder what it is that these kids are looking for?

When I began to read the young Mr. Nicklow's recent message, I thought, "Here we go again." But as I continued to read, my heart went out to him. This young man is WANTING things to be different there and he very plainly laid out what the problem with the youth is in that little town. Young people need activities to spur them on to better things and to open possibilities to them. The best education is outside the classroom. I have raised three sons and they have stayed out of trouble because there was structure and fun (of the wholesome variety) for them while growing up, which in essence, is what Nathan is pleading for. His comment about consistanly producing people who cannot live without government assistance was right on the mark and shows that he is more than complaining....... He is offering reasons for the problems. It is not the sole responsibility of 17 year-olds to correct this mammoth problem. He sounds like a thinking young man. I obviously have taken your letter serioulsy, Nathan. I wish you much luck. Soon you will be able to plant yourself where you can bloom if you can't bloom where you have been planted. Don't write this young man off just because he's a teen-ager. His message is a cry for help. Let's help.

I have lived in Connellsville all of my life, and to be honest with you, it SUCKS!! I hate this town mainly because there is absolutely nothing to do in it but get in trouble....and that's not something we are supposed to be doing. I am 17 yrs old and I hope you take this letter seriously. If somebody doesn't do something about the boredom in this town we will continue to produce stupid people who can't live without gov't assistance. PLEASE FIND SOMETHING FOR US TO DO IN THIS HELL HOLE CALLED C'VILLE!! Sick 'n' tired of being bored- NATHAN NICKLOW

My great aunt taught at the Connellsville High School around 1910-1912. From the information on your wonderful site I surmise she taught at the Cameron building as the present Community Center building was built as the high school in 1916. Do you have any records of that previous school?

I love the guest book. This information is for all of the railroaders on CSX that knew me. I am now retired! You hate to get old, but now it's time to relax. Railroading was fun back in Connellsville and I have alot of memories. I will be in town about the third week in August; so I may run in to some of you at McDonalds or some of the other resturants.

Good Day, and for most of us it will be a good day. Today please take a moment and send your support to Barry Stouffer and his family. Sometime ago Cindy made an entry in the Guestbook asking old friends to contact Barry to cheer him and send their support as he fights his cancer. As of this morning Barry is not doing well. And the power of prayer can help. Be it to give him time here or be it to welcome him into the light. Thank-you.

God Bless you Ann Maize Tobias! I sure hope we meet one day. I pray that many many people come to know how important GOD is in their lives. If only each and every one of you/us would stop and take just a few minutes to realize how very important family is to us all and how GOD plays such important part in our lives each and every day; what a difference it would make in this confusing world we live in. Don't let the little things in your daily lives upset you, it won't matter tomorrow! Take a minute to talk to your neighbor or someone you meet on the street, say a kind word. Anger is so misused! Some of you might know me, most probably don't, but I would like to take this time to say "I love Connellsville, my home place and pray that it will always be the special place it has always been for me." I will be visiting again in July and will definitely be having a pizza or two at Bud's; maybe I will see you!!!!! Have a safe and joyful summer. Pray often for your fellow man, and make a positive difference. See you soon! Michelle "Shelly"

Some names that I have are Wade Strong(stewart)Geary, William Grant Geary, Edith, Homer(shorty), Hazel, Carl,Roy, Eugene, Thomas E., Wade Randall and Robert William. Any of these ring a bell? I am looking to visit this summer. Any information would help. It was said that they lived on Geary hill. Is there really a geary hill or did they just call it that?

Dear Friends, I enjoyed making comments on the Connellsville, PA guest book some time back. I was researching the Phillips/Connell connection in Connellsville and Fayette County. I was researching this history for an old friend. Through this web-site, I was able to get in touch with another Zach Connell descendent, Greg Connell Lawrence. We had a great time in NYC exchanging information and old photos. Any other descendents of Zachariah Connell or John Wesley Phillips, please feel free to contact me. Trying to cast the net even wider. Thanks, Charlotte Rigg Nugent

My name: Ann Maize there you have it MY NAME. So what is this war the two of you are having? I am sure Connellsville has its problems. Let me assure you every community has problems. Drugs, lack of employment...on and on it goes. 20 years ago I moved to a very small town in eastern Pennsylvania. Who would think that over the last few years I have watched the pain of my community as our youth have found their way into the drug culture that we think is reserved for the big cities. Death from heroin overdoses, alcohol related traffic deaths, and the saddest of all suicide. As I reflect there may have been as many as a dozen in less than two years. Is my little town different from yours or a million others? The the young and the to change it all...what can be done to instill morality, pride and hope? What has happened to the "family"? I beleive that much in the hands of the young, our youth who are the future, to first, be aware there are problems, second to become active and YES change things. The young and the old must to join together to make "your" community a place to be proud of. A community that the young will want to raise their children in. A community beautiful to grow old in. To the youth....change your world. Be the leader and set the example. To be "in" is not always where you want to really be. Alone for a while can be a wonderful experience. A time to explore just you, who you are, what you want to be....someone who can hold their head up with pride that YES you are different, and that is okay, YES you are the one who will make the change. The elders of the community, as the adults, must recognize the conditions, and reach out to your youth. Oh, I know that during the teens years they have all the answers to the questions, I know I sure did! Funny as I grew older, the questions never really changed much but the answers.....boy the answers did! Believe it or not this little "debate" you all are having is a start...a, the thing to do is to make it a debate that will be worth more than empty words. It has caught my interest to see just where it all goes.....aroused and reminded me of my obligation to my community. There is my two cents...not looking for any response, always open to honest, not vehement opinions....not pretending that I have any or all the answers. Just a hope that some thing constructive comes from "your" debate. Just one more it fair or are judged by the way you speak and present yourself. The use of vulgar language will never gain any respect, speak with intelligence and your words will be heard. To insult the ear, is to insult the mind. If you speak quietly, those listening must listen closer to hear what you are trying to say . Once heard it cannot help but become food for thought.

The only reason I signed my name as "upset" is because I don't need someone like you to send me nasty emails. Because of your langusge I know you must have a problem with C'ville. And I do know that C'ville isnt't the greatest city alive,but I can say that I have alot of good memories of that town. But yeah we moved away,because there wasn't no jobs to be found that paid any money. If you feel the way you do then maybe you can be that person that does something to help change the way C'ville is.I lived there from birth until 26 years of age.But at the time I never paid much attention to what was really going on around me. So if you are young enough to help the community please to it. Turn it around. Today young people don't get much respect,but you can change that if you want. I wish I could turn back time and help where I could. And I am glad that they deleated what you said. You could have said it in better words....

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all vets young or old for the freedom that they gave all of us.My father was a WW II vet and he was very proud of doing his duty as I was to serve in the Vietnam war. My father was Harry w Rohm of snydertown and also my mother Ruth Rohm who are both gone now and are buried in the national cemetary in riverside calif . My dad finally recieved the little plot of land he fought for. I am very proud that my father taught me the values that he learned from being from connellsville. I also would like to say connellsville i salute you for showing everyone how a small town survive. Thanks again.
