RE: Schumacher
I would be Fred Jr.'s first cousin 1x removed according to Ancestry.com. His father and my grandfather, Edwin F. (Butch) Schumacher, were brothers; two of thirteen children. Fred Sr. was the oldest and my grandfather was #11. They were 25 and 6 when their father died (ironically while giving a sermon about the MO. Synod raising $1,000,000 for widows and orphans of deceased and retired pastors), so Fred Sr. was more like a father to him than an older brother.

Fred Sr. took the call at our church to fill his father's vacancy and served here until his death. He and his family lived just down the street from his mother and younger siblings, so they saw each other often, if not daily. Fred Jr.'s brother, Paul told me that Butch liked to joke with them growing up, telling them stories about fake uncles and trying to convince them that he had a wooden leg.

One of Fred Sr.'s big pushes was for the building of our church. Sadly, he didn't live to see it beyond the design phase, but Fred Jr., fresh out of seminary, was the guest preacher for its dedication in June, 1952. You can see him on the film of that event here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7N3fsQPpKM

The day prior to the dedication, Fred Jr. preformed the first marriage in the new church, his sister Elsa to prominent ELCA minister, Martin Marty.

Don't show cemetery photos

I think someone from the web site must have put it there. Seems like it should have said

Cemetery Photo added by: Erick Wagner

and the other statement left off.

As long as no one takes down the cemetery photo I don't care if it is there.

I was just curious because it looked like you have posted that and obviously you did not.

Elizabeth was my great grandmother and her grave is to the left as you enter the cemetery a few rows from the front

Thanks for responding.

Cheryl

I am responsible for her memorial page and I was wondering why you posted the statement about no cemetery photos on the page. I like the photos that are posted there. Actually went from California to Oklahoma to make sure the grave was still OK. Just a little curious about your statement. No big deal as long as the photos remain. Cheryl

RE: Wm. Gustave Loesch
"Township". Duh. I should have figured that out. So at this point we have no real idea of where this fella is buried, do we? Using one of the online birthdate calculators, I come up with a birthdate of May 13, 1883. With that, the death date and the name, you could create a "burial: unknown" memorial - if you are not averse to doing things like that. But I will leave that to your judgement. Thanks for getting back to me about that. Tom

On the other hand (re my message below) the memorial for the subject individual shows that he and his wife had two kids who also didn't thrive. Maybe "Wm." is buried in Johnston instead?

Hi Erick! I was just noodling around and found this death record for the subject individual. And I noticed that you had created all of the memorials for the family in the Loesch Cemetery in Cole County. Do you suppose this child could be buried there, as well? The document says he was buried in "Jeff Tsp" but I have no idea what that means. Do you? Good luck. Tom in Kansas City, MO
