Franklin J Scherrer 1880s IL >NY Western Union
Posted by: Larry More Date: January 29, 2002 at 10:31:35
  of 77

Seeking information on the following family;

Franklin J. Scherrer b. ? d. aft. 1900. married Anna Maria Hecht b?, d. abt 1945. Franklin was listed in the IL. cencus;
Scherer, Frank IL COOK CO. CHICAGO E.D.147 W. 12 360 1880
There daughter Edith Scherrer was born in 1892 in Chicago. The family later moved to Terrytown, NY. Franklin Scherrer was employed as a personal advisor to Col. Robert Crowley, Vice Pres. of Western Union. Franklin also was a member of the 49er's, an organization of member of the originial 49 companies that formed Western Union, or there descendents. Anna Maria (Hecht) Scherrer died about 1945 and mentions no other childern besides Edith Scherrer (my grandmother). I,m don't know if this was the only marriage of either, however I have a newspaper clip on there silver wedding aniversery. Franklin was named the excutator for Col. Robert Crowley estate. It's strange I have quite a bit on Franklin but no ancestors.

Thanks
Larry More
