Eric if you are still interested maybe we can colloborate. I am possibly descended from a Catherine Schneider (born circa 1825) who may be from Pine Grove or Locustdale area.
She allegedly married Jacob Kerbel (possibly Koerbel?Kerble?) and they had a daughter named Elizabeth born 1857. Elizabeth married Jacob Lauer; they lived in Ashland, and they have many descendents.
What little information I have on Jacob and Catherine ((Schneider) Kerbel is from their daughter Elizabeth's obituary. Elizabeth was apparently born in Minersville.
