Looking for any information or pictures of my 2nd Great Grandfather Simon August Brockschmidt (Brocksmith).

August was born 1831 in Herford, Prussia, and died 1878, in Carlisle, Sullivan County, Indiana. He is buried in an unmarked grave at Indian Prairie Cemetery, in Bucktown. August married Mary Smith.

Their children were Louis, Mary Jane (married William Conley), Minnie (married Ulyssus Grant Shake), Anna Julia (my Great Grandmother who married Newton Tayor), Margaret (married John E. Trinkle), Maranda (married Charles David Risley), Frederich August (married Nellie Hayes), and John F. (married Theodora C. Schory).

The 1860 Sullivan County, Indiana, census shows August & Mary were neighbors of Mary's parents James and Jane Smith. August's brother Fred and his wife Magaret {Smith}, another daughter of James and Jane were also neighbors.
