          As noted in the short histories written by Wyatt and his son, David, another of Nicholas's descendants, Helen T. Pearce, engaged in extensive genealogical research.  I descended from the union of Nicholas Schmehl, Jr., and Elizabeth Volk, his first wife.  Miss Pearce descended from the union of Nicholas, Jr., and Catherine Kline (Cline), his second wife.  Set forth below is the short history of the Smeal family written by Helen T. Pearce consisting of three pages.





The article set forth below is from The Progress, May 29, 1959, and reports that the grave of Nicholas Schmehl, Jr., located in Perks Cemetery was marked and dedicated by the Susquehanna Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
