Birthday Observances, Erwin C.Pickelman

Erwin C. Pickleman was born 23 Jan 1897 in Birch Run, Saginaw County, Michigan to Leonard Pickelman and Mary Eicher Pickelman.  His birthday has been found recorded as 21 January and 25 January, however, his obituary states date of birth as 23 January.  The date may be stated in his death record,  I have not looked at the original record.

He married Miss Laura Mary Catherine Sonntag in Saginaw June 9, 1919 in Kilmanagh, Huron County, Michigan.

To our knowledge Erwin and Laura had five children, Edwin J., Lucinda M., Marie E., Harry C and Loretta E.  We believe that their children have all passed.

Erwin died 18 Sep 1944 in Saginaw County, Michigan. His obituary stated, "He worked at the Chevolet Grey Iron Foundry for 22 years."

Erwin was laid to rest at the Bethlehem Lutheran Cemetery, Saginaw Township, Saginaw County, Michigan.
