Muir All Wars Memorial

Posted By on October 6, 2012

The Muir All Wars Memorial is located in Muir, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania, at the intersection of Keystone Street and East Wiconisco Street.

The memorial stone reads:  “In honor and memory of all Muir veterans who proudly served their country.”  The in-ground metal flag holders recognize each war in which Muir residents fought.

The “1861-1865 Star” recognizes veterans of the Civil War.

To locate the Muir All Wars Memorial, turn south at the United Methodist Church sign on Route 209 in Muir, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania.

The Grace United Methodist Church is located on the northeast corner of Keystone Street and East Wiconisco Street.  Part of the Muir All Wars Memorial can be seen in the lower left corner of the above picture.

On the west side of the Muir All Wars Memorial, the Grace E. C. Church building is located.

From the Muir All Wars Memorial at the intersection of Keystone Street and East Wiconisco Street, continue driving south for two two short blocks on Keystone Street to East Church Street.  The Grace United Evangelical Cemetery is located on the southwest corner of East Church Street and Keystone Street.  The post on Friday, 19 October 2012 will present some of the Civil War burials in that cemetery.

    My deceased husband’s family Samuel & Elva Pell lived in Lykens. My husband, Stewart L. Pell died 11 yrs. ago this Nov. I have a Union gun and sword that belonged to a relative by the name of Capt. John or James L. Pell from the Civil War. Unfortunately, I was not very interested in history and didn’t really listen to what my husband told me about the gun and sword. Now I am interested and would like to find out something about these items and the connection to this Capt. if he really existed. I did see a Capt. James L. Pell listed, but for some reason I always thought the name I was looking for was John.

    I may be coming to Lykens next weekend and would like to visit a memorial.

    This is my first venture into searching out this info as I am not a “computer person” so to speak.

    Thanks for any help. Bettie Pell
