I am looking for any Schmitkons who may be of some help to me. In either Lucas Co or Lorain Co Ohio. I found on the 1900 census for Toledo,Lucas Co OH a Peter Smitkins b 4/1865 in Germany. He was 35yrs old in 1900 & immigrated to US in 1876. Occupation was RR, fireman. Wife, Elizabeth (?) b 5/1871 in OH. 2 ch: Fred b 11/1892 in OH & George b 5/1895 in OH. Someone found for me in the Ohio directories for 1889-1891 a Peter Schmitkons who worked for the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern RR who was also a fireman in Toledo, Lucas Co Ohio. On the SSDI I did find a George Schmitkon who died 11/65 in OH with a DOB 5/2/1895. I'm trying to find out if these are the same persons just different spellings. If any of this looks familiar please contact me at.... DLeMasson@prodigy.net Thank you!
