Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired elementary teacher who is really "into family genealogy" and enjoys helping others with research. Enjoy fishing with my husband and being with 5 grandchildren who are involved in sports. Keeps us busy. Please feel free to use any of the photos I take on your family tree or copy them if you choose. You do not have to "give me credit" and don't have to use my name. It is an honor to volunteer to do this and hopefully helps others as much as it has helped me.
Note for 2014 - I have finished taking pictures at Fairmount Cemetery in Cape Girardeau and placed them on the memorial pages. Some tombstones were not "readable" so 100% is impossible. New comment: As of October 2014 all of New Lorimier has been photographed. I am still working on updating and adding information. I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to John Hinkle who originated most of these cemetery memorial pages. He has done a tremendous service to our community. And thank you to Mr. Weaver at the city cemetery office for all his help. Without him, these pictures would not have been possible.

RE: Albert A. Schultz Sr.
Unfortunately, he and several other members do not reply to your requests, or believe that they have all the correct answers and if you want to correct their data, they tell Find A Grave that your data is not in agreement with theirs so therefore your data is incorrect.

So many of them are only interested in how many memorials they can accumulate with the barest amount of information.

RE: Albert A. Schultz Sr.
You said you found the 13 May 1930 Southeast Missourian. Go to Page 6, Col 6, and the obituary is just below the photo of a Francis J. Dillon and Edward F. McGrady.

In case that page is missing, here is the obituary:

Albert Schultz, 70, Succumbs at
Home in Cape; Native of City
Albert Schultz Sr., 70 years old, died at 11 a.m. Sunday at his home, 315 North Louisiana Avenue. He had been in ill health for several weeks, suffering from a series of ailments. The body was removed to the Haman Funeral Home to await definite funeral arrangements.
Mr. Schultz was born in Cape Girardeau May 8, 1860, and spent all of his life here. His early home was located at the present site of the New Rigdon Laundry on Sprigg Street just north of Independence Street. He was married first to Miss Wilhelmina Sperling, on Dec. 30, 1888. She died Feb. 10, 1903. Seven children were born to this union, four of them dying in infancy.
Those surviving this marriage are Mrs. Ralph Gentry and Mrs. Clarence Snyder of Cape Girardeau and Charles W. Schultz of Cape Girardeau. He was next married to Miss Emma Feuerhahn, who survives. One son, Albert Schultz, a teller at First National Bank, survives this marriage. There are five grandchildren, and three half-brothers, Gust, Leo and Bruno Schultz, and a half-sister, Mrs. Lillie Markhart, all of Cape Girardeau
Was An Engineer
Mr. Shultz was an engineer for several firms here. He was employed by the old Cape Brewing Co. for 12 years, and by the Missouri Utilities Co. for eight years. He also worked for the Herman Bock Laundry on Main Street, remaining there 12 years and later working at the Rigdon Laundry for six years. In recent years he was retired.
Mr. Schultz was a lifelong member of Grace Methodist Episcopal Church and also was affiliated with the Woodsmen of the World and the Sons of Union Veterans.

RE: Edna Hoyer
I did verify Edna and her husband Hugo's burial at the Memorial Park Cemetery in Enid, Okla.. Have also added some additional info on her place of birth and death. Maybe you could contact Mr. Hinkle about removing his memorial. Thanks

RE: C. M.Cunningham Adams
Check with Kathy Franks. She has been working on MO Cunninghams.
She has a message to me some messages back.
I have nothing on CM, but assume that CM is a SHE since it resembles a maiden name.

PS I too would like to know who she is as many family ties are from MO.

Franz family grave site
Thank you so much, Ruth, for photographing the Franz grave site! I live in California, and visiting the cemetery in person is not really possible, so your help is really very appreciated!!
