George Biddinger?
I copied the obituary directly from the (Richland Shield & Banner: 25 November 1893, Vol. LXXVI, No. 27) and they must have spelled his last name incorrectly? Since you have created a new obit for him, I deleted mine. Thanks for letting me know of the mistake!!

If interested I will take management of all the Swartzinski's at St. Catherine's that you have. They are my wife's family so if you want to transfer them I would be happy to manage them.

RE: Frank Swartzinski
Are you sure? There are two different memorials with the same date for Frank Swartzinski. One is Memorial# 122896505 and the other is memorial #80142555

Frank Swartzinski

There seems to be two memorials for the same person - Frank Swartzinski - Memorial# 122896505 & 80142555. Both have information that should be merged together.

Is there a way to merge them or should one just be deleted?

Hello Marge. Effie, #80155354, is a great-aunt to my son-in-law for whom I am doing his family genealogy. Wondering if you would be willing to transfer Effie over to me. If you are related to Effie would you be willing to share what information you have on her. Thanks for your help. It is greatly appreciated.

His parents moved to a farm east of Echo when he was 4 years old, and he was reared to manhood in that vicinity.

He was married to Miss Irene Doty and the wife and the following children survive: Marion McCague, of south of Bluffton; Floyd and Will McCague, Mrs. Margaret Kellogg and Mrs. Edith Huss, of Fort Wayne, and Mrs. Inez Scott, of Bluffton. The following brothers and sisters also survive: Mrs. Mary Dison and Charles McCague, of Fort Wayne; Mrs. Charles Snarr, Miss Ida McCague, Marion and James McCague, of the community south and east of Ossian. County Recorder Oscar McCague is a nephew.
