1. Carl Schultz was born in 1867, not 1876
I am the great-granddaughter of Carl Severin Schultz. The date of birth given for him was transposed, it should be 1867, not 1876; he was older than my Great-grandmother.
I submitted his birth certificate to prove this error, but was told I would have to pay to have the marker corrected. The engraver should have had to pay for his error.
The cost is prohibitive for me, but I wanted to set the record straight.
I sent copies of his birth certificate and military registration to the historical society as proof. I was assured the official records would be changed, but not the marker.
