I've "rescued" an old photograph of Mae W. VAN SCHAICK of Delavan, Wisconsin
which was taken at the R. H. Barlow Studio in Elkhorn, WI. The photograph
is dated April 1891 with Mae appearing to be in her 20's at the time the
photograph was taken. Based on limited research I was able to gather the
following information regarding Mae and her family:
Mae Winnie VAN SCHAICK was b. 1868 in Walworth Co. or Milwaukee, WI to
parents William E. VAN SCHAICK (b. 31 Jan 1825 in Glen, NY) and Harriett E.
WINNIE (b. 1836 in Montgomery Co. NY). The couple had one other daughter in
addition to Mae, their first born Emma E. VAN SCHAICK b. 1866 in Walworth
Co. WI. Mae married Alford YERGEY (b. Villisca, IA to parents John W.
YERGEY and Mary MAYHUO) on 6 Sept 1906 in Livingston, MT.
Mae d. 1932 and is buried in the Sunset Hills Cemetery in Bozeman, MT though
her grave marker incorrectly lists her year of birth as 1880.
