Recently a Schumm relative shared three wonderful old Schumm documents. These documents are very old and it is amazing that they were saved all these years and are in such good condition.

Two Schumm Soldiers in WWI
Last week I posted a photo of 139 young men from Van Wert County, in front of the Van Wert County Courthouse, just before they departed for Camp Sherman on 22 July 1918, where they would receive basic training before entering WWI. At that same time my grandfather Cornelius Schumm (1896-1986) was of draft age, age 21.
