King Family of Washington, DC Greetings, Can you help me locate a husband and wife that passed away in DC? It seems that DC has that 50 year rule about obtaining a copy of a Death Certificate, which is keeping me from finding their burial location. Could you access the Obits in the Library? Please help me if you can.
Hannah Wynn Sandi Gill sent me the information to add to her bio. I am assuming she is related to Mrs. Wynn. I will be glad to make a notion about her maiden name being spelled both ways, if you like. Let me know. Happy New Year!
Schoch @ Old Union Cemetery The death date for Elizabeth Schoch came from "The Old Graveyards of Northampton and adjacent counties in the State of Pennsylvania", Vol. 1, Part V, p. 117 (John Eyerman, June 1899, Easton, PA). I also found a later transcription of the cemetery with the same information. I've gone ahead and transferred Elizabeth Schoch's memorial to your care. ~ Marilyn
"Two things. First I believe Anna Maria Schmidt [Weidman] Correll is Andrew's second wife. Anna Maria GOETTHARDT [Godhard] Correll was his first wife."
I don't currently know where my records on this family are so I can't say whether this is true or not but it may be.
"Second, do you know if the name Schmidt was inscribed on the gravestone? Sorry no I don't know whether or not it is engraved on the stone or not."
If not, could you tell me the source of that name? Again, I don't honestly know the source of the name, only that it most likely is one of the surnames in the family. As to whether it's a name that was added on as a middle name (My middle name happens to be Boyd-which is was the maiden name of one of my grand-mothers) or whether she was previously married I don't know. Again without my records, I am sorry I can't say. I do apologize for not really being of any help in this matter. I really haven't been keeping up with the genealogy much anymore. Best Regards,
