Subject:  Henry Wellman, Gustave and Katherine (Fey) Schoen
Surnames:  Wellman, Fey, Schoen
Query:  My great-great-grandfather was Henry Wellman, who owned the Wellman Funeral Home in Ft. Wayne until his death in 1915. I understand that he came to the area in 1865, but I am having trouble finding any information about him before 1890 or so. My great-grandfather on the other side of the family was Gustave Schoen (he married Katherine Fey). Apart from some mentions in Ft. Wayne newspapers, I'm having a hard time learning anything more about him. Thanks!
