Scheidemantle Name Change

Hi. My name is Stephanie Maki. My Grandmother was Doris Mae Scheidemantle. While putting together our famiies extensive history she would tell me stories about the family of which I have documented. One of the things she told me was there are many different spellings of the Scheidemantle name all the way to Shidemantle. The reason for this, which was told to her by her father when asking how other Scheidemantles were related when their names were spelled different was because there was a very large family fued over the family land and the way it was to be divided. Unable to work out their differences several of the brothers/sisters went their own ways and changed the spelling of the name as an "insult" of sorts to the family. I have been to some of the "other spellings" family reunions over the the years and have been able to peice quite a few of us together again. You can always reach me on my facebook page as well. We may have in fact talked before as I spoke with numerous families while putting the book together. :)

Oliver Scheidemantle

Hello My husbands great grandfather is Oliver Scheidemantle.
Is there anything I can help you with? Would it be possible to get a copy of that picture?

The picture of Howard is my husbands grandfather Thomas Scheidemantle brother.



I am also wondering which of Thomas's children is your husbands father. Also, what is your husbands name?
