I have been trying to trace my German side.My Great Grandfather was Carl Scherping.He was married twice.My grandfather Herman Augusta Scherping came from that first marriage.Grandpa's mother was Matilda Lueck/Luke/Luck.He also had two sisters, Augusta who was older and Gertrude the youngest.Carl's second wife was Marie.
Herman married Hattie Belle Giddings in 1905 in Marion Springs, MI. Hattie died in 1948.Herman in 1958.
Our family settled in Saginaw, MI.Great Grandfather, Grandfather, Grandmother, Father and Mother are all buried in Forest Lawn Cemetary along with Carl's second wife, Gertrude, Augusta, and Marie (Leopold) Lensch.
We don't know who that last one is or how she is related.The eight cemetary plots were purchased by Charles Scherping and Joseph Lensch.
Any information about our family would be appreciated.Please use above email address.Thank you.
