Notes for Edward William Foertmeyer:
The family story is that his nanny set him on a wall while she talked to the beat cop. He fell and suffered fatal injuries. However, Spring Grove records say he died of spinal meningitis. He is found interred at Spring Grove cemetery in the Foertmeyer/Reum/Wagner plot.
