CHAIN: H.H.> HENRY F.> EDWARD
Married Sep 17, 1892
Edward was born July 3, 1866 in Rock Rapids, Iowa. d. Aug. 11, 1911, Omega MN. (4 Months before his brother "Ottie" the Sioux City policeman whose picture is above on this site).
Johanna, "Hanna" Scherff was born in August of 1876 and d. Mar 7, 1929 in Cherokee, Iowa. She was 16 years old in this picture. Her sister, Gesina, married Edward's brother Henry Hans of Alvord.
Edward and Hanna's son Ira lived in the Rock Rapids area and had a fairly large family. Many of them migrated to the Winston-Salem, No. Car. area.
This picture is copied from the file of Dewain Quentin Schlotfeldt of N.Car. and Florida, the original shared with us by his daughter, Vickie Schlotfeldt Atwood.
We have recently acquired quite a bit of information about the Scherff family from descendants of other members of her family.
