Yesterday I was poking around in the census records trying to locate my great granduncle, Edgar Schmidt and his wife, Nelda Birck.  I was able to locate Nelda in several census records and that lead me to her parents, August Birck and Emilie (Peese) Birck.  I was also able to find both August and Emilie's respective death certificates.  After I found those, I went to Find A Grave to see if someone had posted a memorial for each.  Luckily,  contributor John Shuck posted their memorials along with the above photo.  He was nice enough to transfer the memorials to me and give me permission to post his photo as well.
