|I am researching for information about Jacob Schumacher, Jr. He was born December 13, 1867 in Russia (we think) and died September 11, 1937 in Tripp, SD. He was married to Fredericka Ulmer March 31, 1889 in Menno, SD.She was the daughter of Johann Ulmer and Karolina Mutschelknaus. Fredericka was born February 02, 1868 in Johannesthal South Russia, and died August 23, 2943 in Tripp, SD. |
Heritage Review states his birthdate as December 13, 1866, but his death certificate states, 1867. His death certificate also states that he was born in Russia as does the 1920 census. However, I have not been able to find any proof.
TOUCH OF TRIPP has his name printed a few times as Jacob J. Schumacher, and I have no idea what the J. stands for. And it doesn't say anywhere in anything that he is a Jr. but I am using it because on his death certificate it says, his father is Jakob Schuhmacher, Sr.
We suspect that Jacob and his brother Johann were orphans and that they were sponsored by the Ulmers and that they came over with them.
I am trying to find out who their father was and where he came from. I have hit a brick wall.
Any information you have would be appreciated. I will gladly share anything that you would like as well.
