Looking for death date for Edmund Hoffmann who married Ida Schramm in Milwaukee in 1887 and had family there. last record for Edmund is 1930 census. Ida died between 1920 and 1930. Looking for death dates and obits.
Please see information already located about children and spouses. Steffen would like to make contact with living relatives.

There are over 850 occurrences of Hoffman / Hoffmann indexed in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950). Also about 200 Schram / Schramm and over 200 Steffen entries.
