Re: Looking for Karl Scheit, Sr.
Is the family you refer to, from Pendleton County, Kentucky? If so, my great great grandfather had a sister named Lenna Straub who married Nicholas Scheit in 1866. Nicholas Scheit served in the Civil War as a Corp. in Co.E, 7th Kentucky Cav. Union Army. They are both buried at Falmouth, Kentucky.
Lenna was born in 1851 and died in 1897.
This family's last name has also been spelled Shites.
