The second eldest son of Robert and Clara Schumann was the only one to pass the family name. With his wife Antonie Deutsch, Ferdinand had seven children. Descendants of this family are still alive nowadays. Ferdinand Schumann acted as clerk and died aged 42. He became drug addicted and his health state was very bad, so that Clara Schumann had to take care of the subsistence of the numerous family members and grand children. (I.B.)
