LEMARS, IOWA, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 1913
DEATH OF MRS. WM. SCHUMAN
Stanton Township Home Bereft of
Wife and Mother
Mrs. Wm. Schuman died Sunday afternoon at her home in Stanton
townshipafter a protracted illness with Bright's disease. Her friends
knew her condition was serious, but she seemed to be progressing as
favorably as they could possibly except until she was suddenly taken
worse the day of her death.
Elizabeth Held was a daughter of Erhard Held, one of the pioneer
settlers of Plymouth county, who died last Thursday and was buried the
day before his daughter passed away. She was born in Hungerford
township, January 11, 1882, and lived in that neighborhood until
September 26, 1900, when she was married to Wm. Schuman, and with him
established the home in Stanton township where they have since resided.
Three children survive with the father to mourn the loss of a devoted
wife and mother. They are John, aged eleven,Lawrence, five, and an
infant daughter born January 31st. Late last summer Mrs. Schuman
developed Bright's disease, and her friends knew her condition was
serious, but hoped a vigorous constitution might help her to withstand
the disease. The best of care and medical attention were unavailing
however, and last Sunday the young wife and mother was called to her
heavenly home. The sincerest sympathy of the entire community goes out
to the stricken family.
The funeral services will be held Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock at
Melbourne United Evangelical church and interment will be made in
How about the Public Library in Salem ? They have a small genealogy section,
I have been there looking up genealogy on visits up ther. Also the library
in Fairfield, Jefferson County, Iowa, I don't have the address but they have
some old news papers and genealogy on Henry county.
I am trying to locate a copy of the Salem Weekly News (Salem, Henry County,
Iowa) for December 1915 so that I can find a relative's obituary.
Unfortunately the Mount Pleasant Public Library lacks copies for 1915 as does
the Iowa State Historical Society Library. Does anyone know whether I might
find this newspaper in some other archive?

I have a very few old articles that were on the same page as my
ggrandfather's obit. These were in the LeMars Sentinental in 1903. Could I
send them somewhere for inclusion?
I was really fortunate in researching Plymouth County (LeMars) because they
have already indexed most of the names of people in the news in a great
number of editions of the LeMars Sentinental. I had heard that this was
going to be an ongoing project nationwide. Is this endeavor still moving
My research is with the MCCAULIFF, MCAULIFF, FLYNN, BREEN,
BOYLAN and some associated families. While Plymouth is the area where the
McCauliff/McAuliffs and Breens settled, I do have info on Flynns and other
Breens who were in Guthrie and Adair counties. We have made good contact with
most of the descendants on the latter two families.
You can send them to the Plymouth County coordinator at..
Plymouth County, Iowa
Also Diana...list mom... has a site if you'll get with her.
Nice to have another Plymouth County researcher!
