$100 Reward for finding Proof of Marriage or the Burial Place of Rosa Ann “Genrose” SCHADT, nee DURR/DIRR.
William Schadt, b. 06-06-1833, Wittgenborn, Hessen, Germany, came to America in 1850/52 and was 1st in New York City; 2nd Middletown, PA; 3rd in Lock Haven, PA.He married Rosa Ann Durr/Dirr, b. Abt 1835 (don’t know where) , on June 17, 1850/56. Where the they were married is not known, nor has any Durr/Dirr lineage connection been found.I have been to Germany, met cousins and visited the Lutheran church where William was baptized; however, there are no records of the marriage and no Durr/Dirr families in the area.
William died in Lock Haven, PA, April 17, 1914 and is buried at that place.Rosa Ann died from lockjaw April 4, 1870 at the same place.There is an account of her death in the local newspaper, but no record of her funeral or the place of interment.William may have taken her body to the New York City area, Middletown, PA or Lebanon, PA, for interment.
I am offering a $100 reward to the first person who can find Proof of Marriage or the burial place Rosa Ann.
Any other Schadt or Durr/Dirr information would be appreciated.
