P.S. Here is a little I also know about Herman Schomaker. I have his birth place as Lingen German. Married 22 Nov 1886, died 17 May 1939 in Marinette. I am positive that his parents are Johan (also John) Schomaker and Katherine Atten, as per a census. I'm still trying to find more info about Katherine. I don't have birth dates or places for either, but I did see a ship manifest for Johan. FYI!
