Dear family, my sister saw Paul's obituary and we are wondering if he was a grandson of our cousin, Rev. Paul Schmidt who lived in Memphis, TN & whose father,Henry, was a Lutheran minister at Flagler, CO in the early 1900's & married our aunt Lena Blancken --parents of Paul, Heinie, Rev. Walter, Sylvia, Edward. Walter's son is Rev. Warren Schmidt, & is retired in MI, I believe.
Your Paul was a great achiever. I hope you can find time to e-mail me. Velma Blancken Nordine, firstname.lastname@example.org or 1907 E.Taylor,Bloomington, IL 61701
