Hi Steve,

Reference William Christian Rudolph Neumann, Maria Schneemeyer Neumann*, Otto William Neumann, Margaret Bertha Scheimm Neumann, and Carl Peter Amandus Neumann.

Great job!!! I just love to see memorials with the details so well developed. It makes connection with those persons so much more meaningful and I very much enjoyed reading the bios. I am so happy you took the time to do all of this work. Wonderful!!

Now, side notes:

* Just as an added mention, the reason I wrote that Maria Schneemeyer Neumann's mom died between 1923 and 1930 is that I know she was still living in 1923 due to an incident involving her son (Maria's brother), Martin # 11612540.

If you wish, you can read about that here:

If I recall correctly, after this incident, at least three of his children (including the daughter mentioned) moved to the Baltimore area where there were other family members already residing. This incident with Martin prompted me to look a bit more, and that is what led me to you.

Reference Margaret Bertha Scheimm Neumann; I note her mother was surname Meier and there was also mention that she was born on "Fehmarn Island slightly off the coast of Schleswig-Holstein" as well as there being a bit of confusion concerning the spelling of her surname.

Two things about my side of the family and my Meier connection -

1) My great grandmother was a Meier. I originally spelled this as Meyer until a German friend of mine said Germans NEVER spelled Meier as Meyer, though there may be an alternate German spelling of the name. However, they did "Americanize" their names ... g grandma went from being Maria Catharina to Mary K. She is # 20892420.

BUT, I know very little about my Meier side. My grandpa didn't talk much about his side of the family, and I didn't ask like I would have now.

2) My German side spoke low German. From what I understand, this was generally spoken along the northern coastal area of Germany. It is my understanding that my great grandma lived in Oldenburg prior to immigrating. Could be a connection with your side somehow, but I just don't know.

Any feedback?

Steve, no problem getting James Durham to transfer, I just asked. He is a good guy. I'm related to Jake's wife's side. I live not that far from Rockwood. It wasn't James who put the obit but Ralph Terry, the Coleman Co. historian. I'm into dna testing at and they are having a sale thru end of Dec. I've known Ralph Terry for years and we wind up matching on dna as relatives. How, don't know yet. Merle
