SUCCUMBS IN HOSPITAL
MRS. E. B. SCHERMERHORN

_______

Mrs. Ella Marie Schermerhorn,
wife of E. B. Schermerhorn, presi-
dent of the Citizens Bank, died at
Jane Chinn hospital in Webb City, at
4:30 oclock Thursday afternoon.

Mrs. Schermerhorn underwent an
operation at the hospital last Friday
morning. Her condition was rapidly
improving until Tuesday when she
developed pneumonia which resulted
in her death.

Mrs. Ella Marie Brace Schermer-
horn was born November 17, 1877.
She moved from that place to Fort
Scott, Kansas, where she graduated
from the public schools and later
taught in the schools there several
years. She then went to Reno, Nev.,
where she again taught in the public
schools. About fifteen years ago
she moved to Eureka Springs, Ark.,
where she was married to C. M. Sum-
ner, who passed away about five
years ago. She was again married,
Novemeber 19, 1919, to Mr. E. B.
Schermerhorn of this city.

Mrs. Schermerhorn was an accom-
plished vocalist and devoted much of
her time to the study of music. Her
pleasing personality won many dear
friends who are indeed saddened by
her unexpected death.

She is survived by her husband, E.
B. Schermerhorn; her mother, Mrs.
S. A. Brace, one brother, Harold
Brace, both of Reno, Nevada; and
one sister, Mrs. J. F. Casner of Ga-
lena.

Funeral services will probably be
held Monday. Arrangements will be
completed upon the arrival of the
mother and brother who are enroute
to Galena.

First wife, Abbie Brown Simpson.

Jasper County MO. Marriage records:

Edward B. Schemerhorn - Abbie Simpson
21 Nov 1878 366 Book F
She should have been listed as Mrs.
His name is incorrect. Because he was called "Ed" for Edgar, maybe they assumed he was Edward?

Second wife, Ella Marie Brace Sumner.

Harriet M. Schermerhorn Lennon
and sister
Minnie Adelia Schermerhorn Kenyon Lennon
were both married to James K. Lennon.

From Don Freeman, a Schermerhorn researcher:

Abbie was the first entombed in the Schermerhorn Mausoleum. However obviously their mausoleum was not completed when Abbie passed as she was first entombed on 12/26/1915 in the Rogers Mausoleum & then removed and entombed in the Schermerhorn on 08/26/1916. My information shows that she had the disease "gastritis" and that she had a bronze casket. So apparently their mausoleum was constructed between 01/1916 & 08/1916.
