Herman Schmal Dana-- I just deleted my memorial# 154397402 that I added Oct 29, 2015.
In addition to Herman's obit, I found an article dated Aug 26, 1935 in the Hammond Times about his father Jacob, along with a little bio and a picture of him (Jacob) and his great-grandson, Donald Stark. So cool...don't you just love this stuff?
Thanks for your many contributions to this wonderful site! Bobbi
RE: Herman J. Schmal #154397402 Hi Dana-- A bit confusing, but I was able to "untangle" Herman! I index death records on familysearch.org, and recently indexed Lillian Rose's record. I added a memorial for her to Find A Grave since I didn't find one there.
I also try to link a person I add to at least a parent, spouse, etc., so they are not out there by themselves. I found husband Herman's obit in a newspaper through Ancestry.com: it said he would be buried in St.Germain in the spring (he died Jan 21st--wonder what they did with him til then?!!).
I see on your Find A Grave bio that you are researching the Schmal family---would you like to have Lillian's memorial transferred to you?
St Adalbert Cemetery-Schmal gravesites Hi Dana-I filled your request for Lillian Schmal's headstone picture. Although her husband, Herman J Schmal (1894-1971) is listed as being buried in St Germain cemetery in Wisconsin, there is a headstone for him to the left of Lillian's headstone. In addition there is another headstone for 'Mother' Ann M. Schmal (1921-1976) who, I assume would be the daughter-in-law of Herman and Lillian (Ray's wife?). I took pictures of all the headstones so if you create a page for Ann and agree that Herman is buried at St Adalbert's let me know and I'll post the pics...Mary
