The 1885 state census for Dodge Co., [found on gen web site for Dodge co. NE] list Schuman, Rudolph, age 36, born IN, Dorothy, age 35, born BR, August, age 13. Born NE, AN?? [Andrew] age 13, John, age 2, Werry? age 3, [may be Merry], Mitlda, age 1, all in Cumin Twp. Can not find any trace of Rudolph, or August in 1900 etc. Did find a Matilda Sherman, age 26, Head, Single, with sisters, Alma, age 23, Gesina, age 17 and boarder, Rudolph Lutthans, age 9, on the 1910 cenus Cumin Twp., Dodge Co., NE This would be right age for the Matilda listed in 1885. There is a Henry Schurman buried in the Ainsworth Cemetery,but no dates or age listed on index. Stone must not be able to be read. I did find August and sister Anna [children of Rudolph] burried in St. John's Lutheran Cemetery, Hooper, Dodge County, Nebraska but no burial for Rudolph or Dorothy. Maybe someone from that county can be of help.
