Brian, I just found your msg from 2002 re August and Barbara Scharton.I'm the librarian of Central Calif. American His- torical Society of Germans from Russia.
I am a Scharton, but of a different branch.While researching my own branch, I created a tree for August and Barbara in case I found a relationship.
It starts with him (DOB JUl 12, 1861, Straub, and FEB 29, 1944, as date of death, Fresno.)It includes Dermers, Holetons, Walters, Delks, Suttons and others.There is one family member that is a friend of my cousin, a Scharton, and lives on the outskirts of Fresno.Her name is Chris, and married into the Scharton branch of August and Barbara.
If you'd like a copy, please advise and tell me where to send it.It's too long to post (2 pages, single-spaced) and I don't have a scanner.
