Genealogy has become a hobby for me over the last 10 years. For me, it's like a puzzle, I love fitting the pieces together. But over the years, I've researched a lot that does not pertain to our family lines. Some for extended family, some for close friends, and some because I was trying to rule out lines to figure out where our line went exactly. I do not want these notes on my Heather's Genealogy Notes blog - because they are not our lines. But I do like to share all of my research, in case it benefits others. That is what this blog is for - research I have done that does not apply to our own family lines, but may be helpful for someone else.

Joseph W Schreffler 1811–1886

In my search for who the parents of are Sarah Schreffler who married John Christian Oberdorf - researching Joseph to rule him out as her father.  The 1880 Census DOES rule him out - he has a daughter Sarah, but she was born 10 years after our Sarah.

The recollections of Bruce Shirk, as printed in the Millmont Times September 2011:

From 1938 until he entered military service in 1941 Bruce was employed as a molder at the Laurelton Foundry. Shirk thought that as many as 30 men were employed at the foundry during the time that he worked there. Nearly half of these men were molders. According to Bruce, molding was a tricky procedure. The end product depended on whether the sand had the right consistency and how well the molder had packed it. Bruce cast a variety of different parts during his employmThe Watsontown Foundry Company has been launched at Watsontown Pa with a capital stock of $10,000
Foundry, Volumes 18-19 ent at the foundry, including many of the legs and the griddles for the popular Mother’s Range cook stoves.
 Other cast iron products made at the foundry included hog troughs, kettles, globe stoves, heatrolas, jacks (for jumping jack game), ornamental frog doorstops, weathervanes and many other items. Jacks cast at the foundry were also used to clean the cast iron pieces after they were removed from the sand mold and placed in tumblers. The foundry paid its molders only for the saleable pieces they produced. He said that on a good day he could make as much as $3. Bruce recalled how busy
the Laurelton State Bank was when payday rolled around at the foundry. The financial institution, located at 10 Weikert Road, was chartered about 1920 and continued to serve the banking needs of folks living in the West End until it merged with the Mifflinburg Bank in 1941.
 When Bruce returned from his military service business at the Laurelton Foundry was on the decline. He was uncertain how much longer the foundry continued to operate. The names of some of the employees of the foundry during the time he worked there include: George Hauck, Bill Schnure, Les Kerstetter, Fred Kaler, David Gross, Bruce Schnure, Harry Pick, Chip Schell, Carl “Bup” Sampsell, Ray “Punchy” Shirk, Larue “Rat” Shirk, Percy Weidensaul, and Chas Hunter.

The Watsontown Foundry Comes Down
Posted: Friday, January 4, 2013 10:20 am
By Matt Farrand Staff writer
WATSONTOWN — Demolition of the foundry which cast Lewisburg Borough’s distinctive three­globe street light stanchions is underway.
Workers arrived Wednesday at what was once Watsontown Foundry in trucks lettered for Moran
Industries and began the task of dismantling the site where the ancient craft was practiced.
The facility at Fifth and Ash streets in Watsontown waslast owned by Somerset Foundry, which ceased operations in Somerset one year ago. Select corporate assets of Somerset were bought in June 2012 by Whitman Castings, of Whitman, Mass.
Marty Kerrigan, of Whitman Castings, said Watsontown Foundry was known for the relatively simple process of sand casting, a technique for making useful objects out of iron which can be traced almost to the dawn of recorded history. “It still comes down to making a mold out of a tub of sand, packing it down and leaving a void in the sand after you take out a pattern of what you are going to cast,” he described. “In you pour the molten iron, and out comes the casting.” Kerrigan noted that at one time, foundries including the one he is currently associated with, were quintessential small businesses, often taking the name of the area where they were based.
“There used to be a foundry in almost every town,” Kerrigan said, but noted that the foundry business has changed perhaps more than any other classic smokestack industry.
“All of that has gone overseas,” he lamented, noting the growth of foundries in India, Pakistan and China. “Probably 70 percent of storm drains, scuppers and manhole covers are made overseas.”
Modern heavy equipment was used to knock down the brick structures and metal framed equipment which made up the Watsontown Foundry
