My paternal grandmother's name was Elsie Marie Rohrman (b 1910 D who married Thomas Russell (b 1910 d 1981). She loved to tell people how she was related to the Grimm Brothers by the way of her mother (Julia Scmidt) and her grandmother (Marie Grimm).
At first, I was skeptical until I found a box of old photos, known as cartes de visite during that time. My grandmother had written some names down and one of them was Julia Scmidt. When I told my mother about the discovery, she later brought over a piece of paper on which my deceased father had attempted to trace his lineage and the "Scmidt" spelling was there along with Marie Grimm.
I spoke at length with my uncle about this and he could not help me much, but he brought out his collection of cartes de visite which had additional information that wasn't on my collection. This helped me complete the lineage better, but the trail stopped with Elsie Marie Rohrman.
I know for a fact that her father was Louis Rohrman and he came over from Germany. This was confirmed on the back of the photos. Can anyone help me here?
