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!

Carrie Kintz
I have researched Carrie's maiden name and according to all the children that I can find death certificates on, with the exception of one, her maiden name is Stevens/Stephens. On Melville's memorial the marriage records states he was the son of Carrie Stephens. Therefore, I am declining your edit for her.

Photo request for Centrille Long in Mt. Lebanon Cemetery
I am sorry to advise you that there is no marker in Section 5, Lot 215 of the Mt. Lebanon Cemetery for Centrille Long. Rather than simply reporting that there is no marker, I will use a photo that shows the empty space in Lot 215 to fulfill your photo request. There will be a descriptive caption with the photo (need to click on the photo to see the caption). If you are not satisfied with the photo, please let me know and I will remove it.

Sgt Joseph Herwick
Memorial Number 102675343.
The picture you have posted on this Find a grave is not the right Joseph Herwick.

This is my Great Great Grandfather Grave memorial.
The man in the picture is not him.

You are correct this is a a Herwick but I believe this is Alexander.

Thank you

Lydia Herwick Cummings

I spoke with the head of the Edinboro Cemetery Association. Lydia is buried next to her husband, William Kinkade Cummings, in the Edinboro Cemetery. Unfortunately, there is no longer a stone marking her grave. The Cemetery Association was unaware of this until I told them. There is a group of Cummings graves in a sort of half circle on top of a knoll, from Benjamin F (1886-1952) and wife Bernice M (1883-1984), to [Lydia's grave, unmarked] to William K. Cummings (1862-1948), Susie D. Cummings (1865-1924), and Ida M. Cummings (1892-1917). I took pictures of all of them, if you would like them. Sorry I could not get you the photo you wanted. I do have a photo with William's stone on the right and a grassy space on the left where Lydia's should be, if you would like that.

Shelby Cemetery

Just thought I'd pass along there is an online internment list For Shelby, IA cemetery if you would like to include block number with your photo request.

William Low

I have claimed your request for William. I don't know if you checked his memorial, but there is a picture posted. If you tap the picture, the person who posted it, states that the gravesite is unmarked, and placed a rose on the spot of his grave, for the picture.

Olive Bogardus Photo Request
The grave site you requested to be photographed for Olive Bogardus was already done on 7/2/2015 and the captions on the photographs indicate that no marker was ever placed on this grave.

Amy Carmean Abbott 23917566 - photo request
As already indicated in the plot field of Amy's memorial, she has no stone. The photo already there is of the Carmean plot in Block 8. There is no other photo that can be obtained of her grave as it and the others buried in the same plot are unmarked. I have marked your request a problem and to be removed so that others don't attempt to locate this identified grave.

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