Notes for Christian Augspurger:

Christian Augspurger was a prominent farmer in France and managed several large farms there. In Strasbourg, the 500 acre farm that he managed was one of the finest in France. It was one of his most prosperous farms and attracted the attention of royalty and army generals who frequently visited there. This led to Christian being invited to Paris to introduce his style of farming. This ultimately led to his being awarded the "French Legion of Honor Medal" (abt. 1818), which is still in the possession of his descendants.

Christian and Catherine (Hauter) Schertz are buried on their farm, which was inherited by Samuel Augspurger. There are no stones other than field stones except for a recent memorial stone. The cemetery is enclosed by a chain link fence and is on the grounds of Chrisholm, Samuel's home, now owned by the county park board. It was thought that about 15 bodies were in this cemetery, but when it was made into a park, the local power company did sophisticated underground sonic mapping and located about 39 graves. Other than Christian, Catherine, and one or two other burials, no records exist. (Source: Jim Abbott, Cincinnati, Ohio, 1998)

Notes for Arthur Holly Compton:

Arthur Holly Compton was co-winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics (1927). His discovery, called the "Compton Effect", proved the quantum theory. He worked with one of the groups in developing the atomic bomb, invented a gyroscopic airplane control, taught physics at two Universities, and was Chancellor of Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri from 1945 to 1953.[]

The following information was copied from Compton's Interactive Encyclopedia. Copyright 1993, 1994 Compton's New Media, Inc.COMPTON, Arthur Holly (1892-1962) The scientist who first described the behavior of X-rays when they interact with electrons was the American physicist Arthur Holly Compton. In his early research on the measurement of radiation, he found that when X rays strike graphite the are scattered and their wavelengths are increased. This discovery, known as the "Compton effect", was the first proof that X rays can act like particles. This discovery was very significant because it confirmed the theory that electromagnetic radiation can act as both as a wave and a particle.

Arthur Holly Compton was born in Wooster, Ohio, on September 10, 1892. He was the youngest son of Elias and Otelia Augspurger Compton, who had two other sons and a daughter. Compton first became interested in science, chiefly in the fields of aviation and astronomy, as a child. During his first years of amateur astronomy he photographed constellations and Halley's comet through a telescope he purchased. Later he constructed and flew a glider with a wingspan of 27 feet (8 meters).

In 1913 he was graduated from the College of Wooster. At Princeton Univ. he earned a master's degree in physics in 1914 and a doctorate in 1916. After completing his studies, he married Betty McCloskey. They had two son. Compton's teaching career began in 1916 at the University of Minnesota. During World War 1 he helped develop air plane instruments. In 1919 he went to Cambridge University in England on a one-year fellowship grant.

After three years as head of the physics department at Washington University, in St. Louis, Mo., Compton joined the faculty of the University of Chicago in 1923. For his discovery there of the Compton effect, he shared the 1927 Nobel prize in physics with C.T.R. Wilson, a Scottish physicist. Compton also demonstrated the total reflection of X rays and collaborated in the polarization of X rays. Investigating cosmic rays, he discovered their electrical composition. From 1931 to 1933 he directed a world cosmic-ray survey.

During World War II, Compton headed the early phase of the Manhattan District, formed by the United States Army Corps of Engineers to develop the atomic bomb. As director of the project's Metallurgical Laboratory at the Univ. of Chicago, he was in charge of the development of the first nuclear chain reaction, paving the way for the controlled release of nuclear energy. Between 1942 and 1945 he also directed the government's plutonium-research project. He was the governor of the Argonne National Laboratory in 1945.

Compton was appointed chancellor of Washington University in 1945 and was professor of natural philosophy there from 1953 to 1961. He died in Berkeley, Calif., on March 15, 1962.

He was the second cousin of Christian Augspurger, and both of those family lines had numerous other sons who were prominent ministers in both the Amish Mennonite and Hessian Mennonite (Apostolic Mennonite Society) branches of the church.

Notes for Peter G. Schertz:

Peter G. Schertz was born to Christian Margaret (Ebersole) Schertz. Peter had several brothers and sisters. Christian Schertz migrated with his family to the United States in 1831 from the Alsace Lorraine region of France and first settled in Lancaster County, PA.

Peter was a farmer and had a harvesting crew while in Ohio in addition to operating a ferry there for a year; his occupation in Illinois was farming and carpentry. Peter was an Amish Mennonite and his funeral was at the Mennonite Church in Congerville, McLean Co., Illinois. He was buried in the Imhoff Cemetery in south rural Congerville, later joined by his beloved wife Mary. Peter and Mary had ten children, the first six being born in Butler Co., Ohio, and the last four being born in Danvers Township, McLean, Co., Illinois.

Mary was born in Meininger, Germany; and came with her mother, Catherine Heiser (1814-1891) to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and later to Trenton, Butler County, Ohio where she and Peter married on May 23, 1856. She and Peter lived there until 1869 when they moved to McLean County, Illinois and settled near Danvers, Illinois.

Mary's grandfather, the Reverend Jacob Augspurger (1786-1846) was ordained a Bishop in 1830, and was one the first Mennonite ministers in Butler County, Ohio. Reverend Jacob Augspurger performed the marriage of his son Jacob Augspurger (1813-1867) to Catherine Heiser on July 29, 1838 in Madison Township, Butler County, Ohio. Jacob then adopted Marie "Mary" A. Heiser, in addition to Jacob and Catherine having eight children of their own.

Notes for Edwin Christian Schertz:

Edwin C. Schertz was born the eighth child of Peter G. (1826-1891) and Maria "Mary" A. (Augspurger) Schertz (1834-1911). Edwin was born November 18, 1872 in Danvers Twp., McLean Co., Illinois and died January 12, 1945 in Minier, Tazewell Co., Illinois, at 72 years of age. Edwin married Catherine "Katie" Louise Saltar on June 11, 1902 at her family home in Bloomington, McLean Co., Illinois.

Edwin bought a threshing machine in 1899 and had a crew that worked area farms, and was later a carpenter in the Macomb area. Edwin was living in Mackinaw with his sister, Anna, and her husband, E.F. Rutledge in 1900 (census). Edwin was a carpenter by trade and started a building contractor business in 1902; and in 1928 expanded into the heating and plumbing business, all in Minier, Illinois. All of the Schertz children, except for Edwin C. were born at the Schertz home, or the temporary "home in the street", while the new home was being built at 201 West Olive Street in Minier, Illinois. The temporary home was then relocated to 610 North Maple Avenue in Minier where Eddie and Marge Schertz later lived. Edwin and Catherine are buried in the cemetery in Minier, Illinois.

During the early years of their marriage Edwin and Kate took in a child by the name of Flora Royce. She was a neighbor child and the daughter of John and Estella Royce. Flora was born August 24, 1904, and had an older brother, Russell Royce, born September 22, 1902. Her mother died on or about December 1, 1905 with her father being unable to care for her. Her father went to court to grant letters of administration and guardianship to Edwin C. Schertz. The guardianship papers were signed August 27, 1907 with Edwin as principal, and John Royce and Anna Alma Schertz Walker as sureties. Edwin was granted guardianship from 1908-1919. Her father later remarried and Flora moved back with him in the Peoria area around 1915. Nothing else is known about this individual.

Catherine died in a flu epidemic in 1918 just two months after the birth of her last child. The three young daughters (Fern Elizabeth, Mary Anna, and Catherine Rose "Kay") were raised by their mother's sister, Desdemorelda (Jones) Schaeffer Peck, in Beardstown, Illinois. The brothers were raised in Little Rock, Arkansas by their father.

Otto later married (2) Bertha Vaughn. Bertha was born on May 24, 1882 and died in March 1974 in Little Rock, Arkansas at 91 years of age. Bertha was married previously and had several children by that marriage. No children were born to this marriage.
