Last week I wrote about and posted photos of the 1901 Long Beach wedding of George M. Schumm and Barbara Schinnerer. The couple was originally from the Willshire-Schumm area but moved to California around the turn of the century, just before their marriage.
George M. (1867-1958) was the son of Jacob “Frederick” and Maria (Germann) Schumm. Barbara (1866-1952) was the daughter of Martin Schinnerer and his first wife Mary Schumm. Martin and his family moved to California sometime around the turn of the century.
George M. and Barbara Schumm had one daughter, Freida (1907-2005).
The next photo was taken at a family gathering, likely in California. George M. Schumm is in the center of the photo, leaning against the tree. One photo from the Germann collection had their California address written on the back–320 W. Almond Avenue, Orange, California. Was this the same house and did someone transpose 230 into 320 on the back of the photo? There may be several Schinnerers in this photo if it was taken in California.
Some photos of George M. and Barbara in their later years. George Weck, in the photo below, was the nephew of George M. and Barbara. George Weck’s mother was Clara “Maria” Schumm, George M. Schumm’s sister, who married Fred Weck.
The next photo appears to have been taken at the same time as the photo above and the woman to the left is George Weck’s wife, Geraldine (Brubaker) Weck.
Below is a photo of George M and his father Jacob “Frederick” Schumm (1839-1927).
This photo was taken on their Golden Wedding Anniversary, 17 June 1951:
George, Barbara, and Freida lived in California the remainder of their lives. Freida never married.
