RE: john glass kauffman
I think I have him nailed down. Dr Richard C F Schiedt, born Weissenfels, Prussia, Sep 21 1859, s/o Franz Herman Schiedt. Arrived in America ca 1881. Was married to Sophie. Sound right?
Note that the name is slightly different than mine, i before e rather than e before i. Pronounced Sheet. I am pronounced Shydt.
My ancestor was Johan Christian Scheidt who arrived in America ca 1750
I find no burial records for Richard and Sophie.
Regards, Neil

The info on JG Kaufman was obtained from our local newspaper archives. The date of the interview is mentioned in my memorial for him. Reading Eagle archives are on line through
If I find anything on the family's arrival in America I will send. Your email address would be helpful. As you probably noticed, I have the memorials for his parents. I was at their private cemetery this summer to help with restoration.
Re: R C Scheidt, I would need more info to determine relationship. Birth, death, parents, etc.
Regards, Neil
