This is from the Dachau Concentration Camp records for Louis Matthias:

Name:   Ludwig Scheyer
Nationality:   French
Birth Date:   5 Oct 1888
Birth Place:   Maria Eichen
Arrival Date:   6 Sep 1944
Arrival Country:   Germany
Prisoner Number:   102026
Arrival Notes:   06 Sep 1944 Natzweiler
Disposition Notes:   22 Oct 1944 Neuengamme
Description:   prisoner Lothringer
Page:   5644/Gl.
Original Notes (desc. / arr. / dis.):   Sch. Lothr./ 06 Sep 1944 Natzw./ 22 Oct 1944 Ng.

Natzwiller-Struthof was a concentration camp in a former ski resort in Alsace, France.

His death certificate is on Ancestry under the name Ludwig Mathias Sheuer - the family names are correct. The place of death is given as Hamburg-Neuengamme.

Léon's Dachau entry:


Name:   Leo Scheyer
Nationality:   French
Birth Date:   24 Apr 1901
Birth Place:   Fewen
Arrival Date:   6 Sep 1944
Arrival Country:   Germany
Death Date:   9 Oct 1944
Prisoner Number:   102919
Arrival Notes:   06 Sep 1944 Natzweiler
Disposition Notes:   died 09 Oct 1944
Description:   prisoner Lothringer
Page:   5644/Gl.
Original Notes (desc. / arr. / dis.):   Sch. Loth./ 06 Sep 1944 Natzw./ gest. 09 Oct 1944

Perhaps it, given the sensitive nature of this it would be better to continue by Private Message?

Sorry, there shouldn't be an H in front of Léon.

The children's names seem to be correct and Louis (Ludwig in German) Mathias and Léon (Leo) appear to have been two very brave men who died following deportation to Dachau Concentration Camp. It looks like they went via Natzwiller-Struthof Concentration Camp which was mainly for political prisoners.

Hi

Most of the information here you have already, but here is also a photo of Joseph Scheyer.
http://www.francaislibres.net/liste/fiche.php?index=95679

You can find more records about Ludwig Scheyer *1888 and Leo Scheyer *1901 on the "Arolsen Archives Online". There are two death records of the same Leo Scheyer. There is also a card with some medical details. The same for Ludwig Scheyer, he was wounded in WWI.
