Katherine J. (Schultheis) Hartshorn

I saw your loving note for Katherine J. (Schultheis) Hartshorn on her Find A Grave memorial page # 18694211. Although I never met her I am the niece of her adoptive father, Earl William Schultheis, so Katherine was my cousin by adoption. I am trying to find out where her mother, Mary Lawrence (Dunn) Schultheis, was buried and when she died. I have been unable to find her after the 1940 Washington Co., Ohio Census when she was still a relatively young woman. Perhaps she remarried? If so, whom did she marry? Any information you can provide will be appreciated.

My uncle, Earl William Schultheis, and Mary Lawrence (Dunn) Schultheis were divorced around 1930-1936 and he moved away from Washington County, Ohio. Since Mary was Catholic she probably did not remarry while Earl was still living. He died in 1980 in Lima, Ohio at age 84. He had remarried but he was not Catholic.

By the way, my father, Earl’s younger brother, remembered Mary. He used to say she was a very good looking woman. Would you happen to have a picture of her?

Thank you!

Louis Marion Park
Hi! Debbie, FYI - I transferred Louis to you since I'm not related and the Findagrave folks would prefer that information about an individual should not be inserted as a "flower."

So now that the listing is yours, you can move that information to the main page and delete it from the "flower" section. Also, someone requested that I change his given name from Louis to Lewis . . . I forgot to take care of that before I transferred the listing to you . . . so can you take care of that detail for me? Thanks! Ann Koch

You're welcome. I was almost ready to give up and go home, and it was the last place I looked.
The Cemetery is actually called Woodside. There was at least one headstone with the name Maxton on it. That must be where the original name came from.
Let me know if you have more in my area.
