FALL TIME IN MAZEPPA

FALL TIME IN MAZEPPA
IF THIS ISN'T HEAVEN IT'S PRETTY CLOSE
I HAVE STARTED A FACEBOOK PAGE TO KEEP ALL OF THE PICTURES I HAVE OF MY OLD HOMETOWN. I ENCOUNTERED A PROBLEM LINKING MY PHOTO ALBUM WITH THE BLOG AND DECIDED THIS WILL BE THE BEST AVENUE TO GO. SO IF YOU GO TO FACEBOOK AND TYPE IN......IMAGES OF MAZEPPA PA YOU WILL NOW FIND ALL OF THE PICTURES I ONCE HAD ON THIS BLOG. ALSO IF YOU HAVE PICTURES FROM THE MAZEPPA AREA THAT YOU CAN EMAIL TO ME I WOULD BE GLAD TO ADD THEM TO THE PHOTO ALBUM

CYRUS WILLIAM SHRECK

RECENTLY CHERRY AND RON WILL BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION THAT AN OLD MAZEPPA RESIDENT DOESN'T HAVE A MILITARY MARKER FOR HIS GRAVE.  I AM DILIGENTLY WORKING TO REMEDY THIS ISSUE AND WOULD APPRECIATE ANY INFO THAT I CAN SUPPLY THE VA OFFICE.  HIS NAME WAS CYRUS WILLIAM SHRECK AND HE SERVED IN THE KOREAN WAR.  BORN AUGUST 8 , 1931 AND PASSED AWAY  JANUARY 16 , 2014.  BURIED BY HIS PARENTS  S. CATHERINE  ( KOCH )  AND DANIEL SHRECK.    ANY INFO IS APPRECIATED AS THEY DON'T SEEM TO HAVE HIM ON FILE ALTHOUGH HE DOES HAVE A MILITARY HEADSTONE.  WHAT WOULD BE WONDERFUL IS TO HAVE THIS RESOLVED IN TIME FOR THE MEMORIAL DAY PARADE AND CEREMONY.  MY EMAIL IS   mazeppa@ptd.net.    I AM ATTACHING PHOTOS OF CYRUS.....ANOTHER OF HIS PARENTS AND ONE WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS WITH CYRUS SITTING AT THE PIANO.

GREAT DAY

THE CREEK WAS JUST A BIT CLOUDY FROM THE RAIN YESTERDAY AND A LIGHT RAIN AND OVERCAST WHILE I FISHED AND PERFECT CONDITIONS.  CAUGHT 40 PERCY AND THE HIGHLIGHTS WERE THE 17 INCH PICKERAL AND THE 15 INCH SMALLMOUTH.  ALSO FOUND THE BEAVER'S DEN AND SAW LOTS OF BLUE HERONS AND KINGFISHERS.
