Henrietta Theresa Schermerhorn (b.1863, New York) married Thomas H. Speddy in 1890 and settled in Alameda, CA (near San Francisco).
Henrietta was a prominent citizen and the architect of her Dutch Colonial Revival home in Alameda. The home is now in my family. www.855cedar.info.
They had two children, Faith and Kenyon Clark. Faith went to school at UC Berkeley. By the time she graduated, she had an Ohio address. Kenyon had an Ohio address while he was in the Army. He retired in Florida. I cannot find any marriage records of Faith or Kenyon.
Please contact me if you have any info that might help me find the decendents of this remarkable woman.
