Alma Schermack Feneley

Colorized tintype photo of Alma Schermack Feneley, my great-great aunt. Born to Joseph J. Sr. And Amelia Schauer Schermack in Freeport, Illinois, USA, she and her siblings followed her brother, inventor Joseph J. Schermack, Jr., to Detroit, Michigan, USA in the 1910s. She married Charles Feneley in 1917. I knew her as a widowed octogenarian in the 1970s when she lived on the west-side of Detroit, next door to her sister-in-law, Grace Richards Schermack and across the street from her brother-in-law, John William Blumenstiel. #falknerjarrell #schermackgenealogy #schermack #freeport #freeportillinois #illinois #familyhistory #genealogy #familyphotos #oldphoto #oldphotos #illinoishistory #detroit #detroithistory #michigan #michiganhistory #josephjschermack #hats #1900s #womeninhats #women #womensfashion #feneleygenealogy #feneley #hats #aunt #greatgreataunt #tintype #tintypephotography #colorizedphoto #colorized

    1. Thanks for your comment. Grace Richards Schermack and Alma Schermack Feneley were sisters-in-law (Grace married Alma’s brother Alfred Henry Schermack). They were both my great-great aunts and I was not named after them. They loved next door to each other on Winston St in Detroit and I remember visiting them as a child. Joseph J. Schermack, Jr. was the inventor of stamp machines, mailing machines, and other things.
