Bernhart "Barney" Scherer
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jun. 14, 1856, Germany
Death: Oct. 3, 1943
Erie County
Ohio, USA

This is my Great Grandfather. According to his signature on the death certificate of his spouse, Maria Catharina (aka Mary Kate) (Scherrer)Scherer, his name was Bernhart Scherer.

According to his death certificate, his daughter indicated his name was Bernhardt Scherer.

A cousin placed this headstone in the late 1990's and was unaware of his correct name.

The church records and cemetery records have the wrong death year listed. I have documentation for the correct death date.

He came to the United States from Baden about 1870-1872. He received his naturalization in 1875.

*Calculated relationship
There is an error on his headstone. He actually passed away in 1943. I have his funeral home card and a photo of him with my mother when she graduated in 1943. I also have a copy of his death certificate which indicates the date of his death was 03 October 1943. The wrong date exists in the church records and that wrong date was used when the headstone was made for the gravesite.
