CCC List Up

Posted on October 23, 2010 at 9:41 PM

Today, I was able to complete the list of CCC names I have from around the Huntingdon County area.  I scoured my notes from when I was in college to list anyone who had ties to Huntingdon and the surrounding counties.  My list is not inclusive...I'm sure I'm missing many, many people.  However, these were the names I was able to round up.  If you know of other names, or can help me fill in missing information, please contact me.  There is an information form you can complete for the CCC Roll Call.

 

Nancy Dillon Block sent me the first completed form today on her father, Paul C. Dillon.  He served at camp S-112 Detweiler, which was better known as the Martin's Gap camp.  Thank you so much, Nancy; your dad is added to my list!  Nancy has photos and other documents she is going to send to me.  When I receive them, I will start a CCC photo album.

 

Keep the names coming...

Hi Jim,
I don't have any information on your dad. Traditionally, the boys had to be between 18 and 25 to serve with the CCC. However, the leaders and staff at the camp were often older and were from the local area. I've added your dad to my list. If you are able to learn more about his service, please let me know. Can you give me his birth year and death year?

If you are searching for more information, please
