Research Notes

During my research, I came across this article that named Fred Scholl. I have no sources to confirm that the Fred Scholl in the article is the same as the Fred Scholl of this profile. This profile is of the son of my husband's 2GGP.

This occurred in 1908, when Fred Scholl would have been 23. It is possible in his early years that he left Sangamon County where in 1900 he was 15 and attending school and ten years later painting house with his father at 25. I only included it in this profile because my husband vaguely recalls a story about someone finding a note floating in Lake Michigan. Fuller-5853 13:49, 27 September 2017 (EDT)

Pat, did you know the floating flask article doesn't show on this profile, because of privacy of the profile or the privacy of the photo, which are tied together.
