Mollie Patterson - Osage Vicki, do not know for sure Mollie is in Osage, but going Saturday to divine around Sallie's grave for her. Sincerely suspect that is where Mollie is interred and w/o a marker of any kind. Will notify as to what I find. Dee
RE: Mollie Patterson Vicki, Another member states that she is fairly sure Mollie is buried in Osage by her young daughter and does not have a marker. Would you kindly move her to Osage Cemetery, Coryell County, Texas for now. I will verify shortly. Prayers that your test prove that you are clear. Been there, done that!! Dee
Schetrompf Family info Hello Vicki, I thought the post below might be beneficial to others researching the Schetrompf family linage. John Z. Forwarding as requested: "John, I got your name off of "Find A Grave". Some more information on the Schetrompf side.
Anton Schetrompf had 3 sons and 2 daughters. 1. Johannes who married Susanna Hidricks. 2.☆Baltharaar who married Catherine Kneram. (My side of the family) 3. Christian who married Elizabeth Decker. 4. Anna Maria who married William Ritz. 5. Catharina - don't know anything more about her.
Baltharaar and Catherine (known as Fanny) had 3 sons and 1 daughter 1. Christian - 1846 2.☆ Samuel - 1848-1895 who married twice - A. Mary Ann Grant- they had 2 kids - Harry Ulysses and Anna Maye. B.☆Catherine Emigh - they had 4 boys and 1 girl - ☆John B. married ☆Mary Jane Erb, George C married Lottie McCoy, James Wesley married Olive , David married Hannah , and Elsie Edith married Hugh Wiser.
John B. and Mary Jane had 5 sons - John C, Iver, Wilbert E, Gerry, Arthur. And 2 daughters - Frances G. and ☆Laura Grace (my grandmother). John and Mary Jane divorced and all the kids were given up for adoption including my grandmother. John never remarried, but Mary Jane did remarry Isaac Walton.
I do know that Baltharaar spelled his last name Schetrompf, but his son Samuel spelled it "Sheterom" and that is how my grandmother spelled her last name too. I know that Baltharaar came over on the ship The Clementine in 1842. And arrived in Baltimore, MD with the following family members - his father-Anton, Anton's sons - Johannes and wife Susanna and children Christina, John George; Baltharaar, Christian, & also Anton's daughters - Anna Marie and Catharina.
The "Sheterom's are all buried in either Saxton, Bedford, Pa at Odd Fellows Cemetery and also in Altoona at Oak Ridge Cemetery or Yellow Creek, Bedford Co, Pa. My grandmother is buried in Biglerville, Adams Co, Pa.
I hope this helps you. My mother was Laura's daughter. She had 4 daughters and 1 son. She married Otis Logan. And my name is Cindy Gebhart.
I am curious how the lady Vicki on Find a grave, said that they changed their name from Schiederup to Schetrompf.
Doesn't she understand that many people back 1600-1900's misspelled people's first and last names all the time. I have seen Schetrompf spelled Sheetrom or Shetfomp or Shetrum.
Because my grandmother had a very old bible that had Anton's last name spelled "Schetrompf" and being born in a town close to Hesse, Darmstadt, Germany. But you couldn't no longer read Anton's wife's name, or their marriage date or her death date or the children's baptism dates. She got the bible from her father- John B., who got it from his father- Samuel. But it was destroyed in a fire in 1967. Along with some very, very old photos. That were stuffed in the bible. The bible was kept in a very, very old wooden box.
Must close now. I hope you can pass my information onto Vicki on find a grave.
