- Tree Leaf.

NB: Due to exhaustion, after sending out approximately 950 typed obituaries and funeral notices, in addition to those I typed for my own pages, I may now occasionally post the obituary image instead. If any page owner wishes one removed, contact me via a PRIVATE message, by using a random page I manage and typing in the SAC 'edit' blank. I will then remove it. Also: If you'd prefer me to send you a typed version to copy and paste into the decedent's bio section, let me know.

I was sitting 10-12 hours a day without meal or other breaks, trying to help as many deceased as I could by doing so. The obituaries were all prior to copyright years (and most obits/notices were 100 years or older), in keeping with site rules. (The site rules on copyright are in the site FAQ.)

However, carpal tunnel + exhaustion + many members either being inactive or taking full credit for the submission led me to rethink this a bit.

I will still type things out for you when I can.

As for my own pages: I am an active member. Please send me a link or a typed transcript rather than posting a clipping. I will copy and paste any (out of copyright) obituary which is sent to me in typed form. (Source info must also be included: Newspaper title and date.) I will give you credit if you transcribed it for me. Or, I am willing to type it myself. Might take a bit if my carpal tunnel is acting up ;)

If an article is still within copyright years, I can rewrite it completely. Just make sure you include the source information (newspaper title, date, and page number too if you can.) A completely rewritten piece, posted with the source info, is legal.

So 'work with me.' Also: please do not post a death cert. anywhere here, I find it improper as part of a memorial. Please do not use the flowers section for posting biographical information. It may be in error; then what do we do? Flowers are for remembrances and regrets. The bio section is for biography. I will 'work with you' just contact me via the SAC in the edit tab.

I'm a big believer in biographical information, and the site put the bio section there for a reason. As I like to say: "How can we find a grave if we do not know who is in it?"

Thanks for all you do.....

This is the original German spelling. Peter Henry Schuermann is on his headstone. his father is
Peter Schuermann, and mother Hanna Hokamp are supposed to be buried in the same plot. I am still waiting on a picture of their headstones so I am not sure what it says. (I do not know if they even have one) Peter Henry would be my great-grandfather. His children all changed to Sherman, the English spelling. Thank you for your info. I verified my info with the cemetery office. Barb

Thank you for the correction. Sometimes my brain does not always get to my fingers while typing on this new laptop. Barb

RE: Seward
You can send it to me in a email if that will work for you.

I was wondering are you related to the Sewards?

Both of these have the date of the house fire in which Ms Priest sadly died.

One is an article by Quincy's CBS affiliate and the other is her obit.

RE: thanks - Anna C Moritz
No need for a credit mention on the memorial. Thank you for the quick update. I just found the link between Anna's 2nd husband and my 2nd GGF. Turns out they are father and son. I am just following the research and adding to Find A Grave when I can.
