Re: Henry Schum of Pa/Indiana
Henry Schum is the grandfather of my grandfather, and Joseph Schum is my grandfather's father.Theresa (Maffenbeier) was indeed Henry Schum's first wife; they had seven children.After Theresa died, Henry married Katharina Jent in 1877; they had eleven children together.Needless to say, Henry has many descendents.

I am trying to find the parents/ancestors of Henry Schum who is shown in the 1870 Spencer Co., Indiana Census as, born in Pa., age 25, and head-of-household. His wife is shown as Theresa, age 23, born in Bavaria. Their children are shown as Joseph, age 2, and Margaret, age 1, both born in Indiana.
