BARTHOLOMEW, FRY, PAINE, RIEGEL posted by Pat Bartholomew sweitzer on Saturday, September 9, 2000
I'm looking for an obituary for Florence Paine Bartholomew, b. abt. 1867, d.abt. 4/1939. In 2/1885 she married Edward Bartholomew. After his death, 8/5/1891, she may have married a Mr. Riegel(Reigel, Reigle, Riegel) or a Mr. Fry. She lived in Green Springs, Seneca and I believe she is buried a couple of blocks from her home which was, I am told, one block off of Main street.

SCHOCK, WARE, WEHR posted by vn on Saturday, October 7, 2000
I seek more information about this family, especially any information on Lucy Ann Wehr who I am guessing is the daughter of Philip Wehr (Ware) 1790-1867. George Schock George Schock, son of John and Elizabeth Schock, was born in Washington township, Union county, Pennsylvania, December 17, 1819. He remained under the paternal roof until 1840, when he removed with his parents to Thompson township, Seneca county, Ohio, where he worked first for his father at one hundred and fifteen dollars a year. He learned the carpenter and joiner trade, at which he worked for about three years On the 20th day of September 1945, he married Lucy Ann Wehr, a native of Lehigh county, Pennsylvania. They reared a family of nine children, namely: Benjamin F., born January 10, 1847. John, born September 25, 1849. Joel, born October 29, 1851. Polly, born October 28, 1853. Eli, born May 14, 1856. Sarah, born June 10, 1858. Hetty A., born March 7, 1861 Lydia A., born July 2, 1863; and Emma A., born November 13, 1867. Mr. Schock has been mostly engaged in farming, although he has devoted a considerable portion of his time to the manufacture of sorghum, and to the raising of poultry. In 1871 he removed to Michigan and purchased his present fine farm of one hundred and sixty acres in Lockport township, which he keeps in an excellent state of cultivation in addition to attending his other business. He is at present, treasurer of Grange No. 178, and also treasurer of Pomona Grange, No. 4, of St. Joseph county. In politics he is a Republican, thought he has recently affiliated with the Greenback party. In religion, he is a member of the German Reformed Church. For a late settler in his township no man enjoys more the confidence and esteem of the people than does he of whom we write. A view of his residence and buildings can be seen elsewhere in this work. From: History of St. Joseph County Michigan 1827-1877. Description of its scenery, palatial residences, public buildings and important manufacturers. Philadelphia L.H. Everts & Co. 716 Filbert Street, 1877.
