    well i was just curious about my relatives and my family tree and stumbled upon youre site.. my oldest schumm relative that i know isjay schumm, who is my dad and grandpas name.

    1. Nice to hear from you. We updated the Schumm genealogy last year but we do not have a Jay Schumm in our book. You may descend from another Schumm line. I know there are other Schumms across that state that we are not directly related to. We may have common ancestors farther back in Germany. Our Schumms were originally from Ruppertshofen, Wuerttemberg and they immigrated in 1833. I hope you get some helpful information here.

    Hello, I just came across your website and was curious to look at the family tree. My Grandfather, Hugo Merkle’s parents were Charles Merkle and Clara Schumm. Clara’s parents were Henry Schumm and Rosina Schinner. That’s the only information I have for them – no birth or death dates of where they lived or any other relative’s information. I do know that Hugo was born in and died in Van Wert Co., Ohio.

    1. You are in the right family! Rosina Schinnerer (1854-1890) was Henry Schumm’s first wife. Henry (1844-1922) was known as River Henry around the Willshire/Schumm area. I have written several blog posts about this family, one about River Henry and his second wife Magdalena (Geisler), posted on 20 November 2012. Rosina Schinnerer’s father was my gr-gr-grandfather Friedrich Schinnerer, from his first wife Mary Deier. I descend from Freidrich and his second wife Elizabeth Schumm. I have also written a lot about Friedrich Schinnerer. The best way for you to find the information I wrote would be to use the search feature in the upper right of my Home Page. Thanks for writing and I hope I provided some information about the families.

    Hi! I was doing my family tree on another website and was searching around for different names to see what records I could find. I found this website and saw that we both have Friedrich Schinnerer in our ancestry. He is my great (x4) grandfather. He was married to Margaretha Deier in Cleveland, Ohio, and their daughter Anna Rosine Schinnerer is how I am related.

    1. Yes, we certainly share Friedrich Schinnerer as an ancestor. He was my great-great-grandfather. I do not know much about his first marriage but would like to know more and will e-mail you privately. Thanks for writing and I hope you find the information about Friedrich interesting.

    Hi There

    I am researching my family The Schumms who came from Adolzfurth in Wurttenberg – not far from your Schumms. Mine came across to the UK in the mid 1800’s but I’ve been tracking them back in Germany. Do you have any idea where I can find details of your German Schumms to see if I can make any connection at all. My Schumms were Pork Butchers,

    1. I got some of that information from church records microfilmed in Germany by the LDS church. I can look up the film numbers for you and e-mail them to you. I met a Schumm from the Cleveland area at a genealogy conference a few years back. He was not from our John George Schumm branch, but probably related farther much back.

    Hi I have a question. I have a copy of the John George Schumm 1988 copy of the history book, and descended from the George Martin line. However, my question is on the spelling speculation that is mentioned there. Are Schumann the same family line or a different family.?

    1. As far as I know, after the family immigrated to America in 1833, they spelled their name Schumm. Older German church records that I have seen also spell the name as Schumm. I believe the history you mention does say that the name was originally spelled Schumann, but I have never run across that spelling. I believe the family has spelled the name as Schumm for the past several hundred years. If the name was ever spelled Schumann it would probably have been over 500 years ago. I would consider the Schumanns a different family, in my opinion. DNA might prove otherwise… Thanks for writing!
