CHICAGO E.D.147 W. 12 360 1880 There daughter Edith Scherrer was born in 1892 in Chicago. The family later moved to Terrytown, NY. Franklin Scherrer was employed as a personal advisor to Col. Robert Crowley, Vice Pres. of Western Union. Franklin also was a member of the 49er's, an organization of member of the originial 49 companies that formed Western Union, or there descendents. Anna Maria (Hecht) Scherrer died about 1945 and mentions no other childern besides Edith Scherrer (my grandmother). I,m don't know if this was the only marriage of either, however I have a newspaper clip on there silver wedding aniversery. Franklin was named the excutator for Col. Robert Crowley estate. It's strange I have quite a bit on Franklin but no ancestors.
