To Paul Peterson: I had not checked this site in some time. I was so excited to read your note. Yes my father was Harold W. Schmidt. and my brother is Harold C. Schmidt who lives in Spring Lake, MI. Actually Olga an Emil had Edna, Lucille, Mildred and Gertrude and my dad Harold. I would love to hear more from you. I was pretty excited to see my Grandfathers name on the Fallen officers wall. Lucille had a son Paul. Lost touch with him years ago. Please let me know if you have more info or even questions for me. Not sure I have many answers but maybe you might have some for me!
