  • Note: Joseph's great granddaughter, Carol Ruth (Schottler) Ewing, helping with family research and writing to her sister, Shirley Ann (Schottler) Bowman many years later, wrote: Don (her husband) and I went to Oakland today and stopped in at the Mountain View Cemetery and Crematorium to see if Joseph Schottler was there. He was, as you can see by the enclosed copy of a page out of a huge leather volume. His ashes were never picked up by the family and remain stored in the "urn room" as you can see on the right of the document. It's interesting that "Minister" was crossed out and "Mrs. Winter, Christian Science" is there. He is "warehoused" somewhere in the vast archives and not placed in a niche. It is a beautiful cemetery. The Oakland Hills fire (a "runaway fire in 1996) damaged only the eucalyptus trees on the edges of it, and didn't hurt the many huge old trees on the grounds. The chapel was so pretty--the architect was the same woman who designed William Randolph Hearst's Castle. The lady who helped us was very helpful. We had the date of his burial (burial?), otherwise I don't think she could have found the record, so I guess it wouldn't be possible to find Frankie if she were there. I looked up Phthisis (on the document) in my medical dictionery and it said it was an old term for tuberculosis infection or any disease characterized by emaciation and loss of strength, especially of the lungs." 1 2 3
