    • Newspaper Obituary - January 17, 1929 Journal and Republican and Lowville Times - Lowville, New York - ENDS LIFE WITH POISON - John D. Schumaker, Native of West Leyden, Had Been in Failing Health Many Months - Getting up while his son was in the barn, John D. Schumaker, 59, town of Augusta farmer, went to the kitchen cupboard, returned to bed and drank part of a cup of poison. He died about two hours later. Dr. S. B. Grant, Munnsville, reached the beside before Schumaker died, but was unable to save his life. Coroner Gordon A. Holden, Utica, gave cause of death as suicide. Mr. Schumaker suffered for a year and a half with blood poisoning and had been in failing health. He was despondent and believed he was not going to get well. He had been a resident of the town of Augusta for 30 years. He was born in West Leyden, Lewis county, October 15, 1869. Surviving are his wife, Eliza Schumaker; two sons, William, at home, and John of Newport; six daughters, Mrs. Samuel Pease, Mrs. John Blair, Mrs. Orva Tracey, all of Knoxboro; Mrs. James Ladeux, Rome; Mrs. Daniel Ward, Munnsville, and Florence Schumaker at home; four brothers, Henry, Vernon; Joseph, Rochester; Lewis, Mexico; William, Syracuse; and one sister, Mrs. Jacob Greander, Utica, also 13 grandchildren.

      Thanks for responding. The Schumaker Family tree is mine. I don't put anything in it until I am reasonably sure it is correct. I took a look at some of the others today (again). I haven't found any new information in them, so I will give up on that source. I wish I knew where Elizabeth Grimes Schumaker is buried (b 1847) and when she died. Her husband Charles Joseph Schumaker (1837-1911) is buried in North Boyleston Cemetery. Her son Lewis Schumaker (1877-1952) and his wife Mertie Rowe (1882-1941) are both buried in Daysville Cemetery in Richland, Oswego, NY. I remember my mother telling me that she and my father used to visit Lewis Schumaker in Mexico. That must have been in the 1930s or early 1940s.
      Thanks, Mary
      I happened onto your family tree. I am a granddaughter of John D. Schumaker (1869-1929) who grew up in Lewis County and moved to Oneida County as a young man. His parents were Charles Joseph Schumacher (1837-1911) and Elizabeth Grimes (1847 -?). When I was about 14 my father's aunt lived with us one summer. She was the only daughter of Charles Joseph and Elizabeth. Her name was Mary Elizabeth Schumaker Greender. She told me that her brothers changed the spelling to Schumaker. Do you have any more information on this family that you would consider sharing with me? I have been working on a family tree for several years using ancestry.com. I quickly learned you can't trust the family trees that some people post. I found one listing my father's parents with about 20 children! They had 7 daughters and 2 sons. I contacted the person who posted it and she is a great-granddaughter of that couple. I asked her to change the tree, but it still stands as before. Obviously she used the census records to compile the data. She had my oldest aunt listed as Margarite (her true name), Margaret, Maggie, and Mary Ruth. She had my dad as both William and Willie. I told her I had visited all of the children in that family except Anna who died in the flu epidemic of 1918-1919, long before my time. Thanks for your help. Mary Schumaker Hane
