RE: Martin Scherff
Hi, I did some research and I believe the pictures are correct that Heritage Roper posted for Martin Scherff, it is very common for a person who served in the military to have a military marker and a family marker.

According to records I found Martin Scherff, (1834-1900)served in the U.S. Navy, he enlisted in 1861 and was discharged in 1863. His son was born in 1855 making him six years old at the time of his father's enlistment

The 1880 federal census shows that Martin lived in Clover Valley with his wife Anna, and daughter Emma, who on 26 May 1892 married John Fitzmaurice in Nevada.

There is a Martin Scherff, Jr. buried in the Springdale Cemetery in Peoria, Illinois.

I hope this helped.

Best Regards,

Martin Scherff
Please put Martin Scherff's Us Navy headstone separate from his father's headstone (Martin Scherff Feb 13, 1834 May 6 1900). They are two separate people. This is in the Clover Valley North Cemetery.
Awhile back I researched Martin Scherff and forwarded you the information I found. Both headstones belong to Martin Scherff, Sr. If you do a goole search you can go on the government website that explains that a person who was in the service may have a miltary marker and a personal marker.
The miltary marker that Martin, Sr. has was the style used for Civil War veterans. The Civil War was 1861-1864, with Martin Jr being born in Feb. 1855, I dont think he served in this war.
If you type in Martin Scherff, Jr., you will see that he died March 16, 1921 and is buried in the Springfield Cemetery in Peoria, Peoria County, Illinois.
If you would like I can send you copies of Martin, Sr's service records. Martin, Jr., never lived in Nevada.
I dont mind making corrections, but, I know that both markers belong to Martin Sr.
