Bio and Links
Geneology research has brought me a lot of joy. I hope that my work will help other researchers along the way.

I am currently working on my Shaum family in Indiana and Ohio. I would love to share with any other family members. Just send me an email!

Most of the Shaums in the US trace their linage to Johannes Shaum who immigrated to Pennsylvania from Germany in about 1775. He had 9 children. My family descends from his son John (1797-1882.) John was born in Pennsylvania and moved to Ohio. John and his wife Sarah Buzzard had 16 children.
George, Amos, Samuel, Rebecca and Michael stayed in Ohio. All the others moved to Indiana: Jacob, Manassus, Adam, Henry, Christian, John, Rachel, Mary, Sarah, Joseph.

I am looking for my Indiana relatives and tryig to get them all linked up!

You are correct, however, I cannot make the correction. You need to contact Euda Breshears who you transferred to.

If you'd be willing would really like this memorial transferred to my care. He was my father-in-law and my son's grandfather. Thank you!

I transferred all the ones you asked for, except Harold Rohrer and Buelah May (Werner) Rohrer. They're my great great uncle and aunt, and I want to keep them. Harold's brother Roy is my great grandfather.

RE: Shaums from Olive Cemetery
It is incredibly fun. I've lived in Elkhart County my whole life, but never gave much thought to my ancestry until I started a couple years ago, and it's been amazing to learn how much history the area has, and how much of it is still around, and how much my family played a part in it. My gr-gr-gr grandfather's farmhouse and farm is still around today, and is listed on the National Historical Record as the Joseph J. Rohrer Farm. It's incredibly cool.
