According to her death certificate, Elisabeth Scheidt was born Sept. 21, 1832 in Germany. Her father is listed as Laurence Scheidt (whoever filled it out spelled it Shridt) of Germany, and her mother is listed as Elizabeth ? (Heubuer, Heubner, or Heuber) also of Germany. Elisabeth S. married Lorentz Gross. A letter found in my grandfather's papers said Elisabeth S. was from Nassau, RhineProvince, Germany and Lorentz was from Kathauseu, Lorraine, France.
