  • Notes 
    • Schmidt Family

      One seldom finds five generations of one family in a direct line of descent all alive at one time. We are able, however, to present such a case to our readers. The great-great-grandmother is the widow of George Seyler, 82 years old, resident in Berlin; the great-grandmother is the wife of Henry Meuser in Elmwood, 65 years old; the grandmother is Mrs. Amos Weber in London, 45 years old; the mother is Mrs. Arthur Schmidt in Berlin, 22 years old, and her little daughter, the grand-daughter, great-grand-daughter and great-great-grand-daughter of those named above, first saw the light of day, four weeks ago. Amazingly, the maiden-name of the great-great-grandmother and of the great-great-grand-daughter, the first and the last in the long line, is Schmidt.1a
