The Scherr branch has proven to be difficult to trace. It appears that the folks in this family tended not speak to one another or keep track of family members.   

It has long been a persistent and strong rumor in the Scherr family that we are related to Vice Admiral Reinhard von Scheer of the German Navy (WWI).  All his life my grandfather referred to the Admiral as "our uncle" and expressed great pride in the fact that von Scheer was related to him.  One of my research projects is to determine whether this connection is in fact a real one, as we believe it is.

The Scherer family has been much easier to trace.  This project had a good start through the efforts of Betty Petzko, a cousin of my father Robert Arthur Scherr.  Betty would be thrilled to know that her speculation that Christian Scherer and Claudius Scherer were possibly cousins was not only founded, but in actuality they were brothers!
