Schultz, Andrew (1884? - 13 JAN 1915)

Andrew Schultz was found in a room at the home of his mother, Mrs. M. Manczuk, in this village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.) on Wednesday of last week, with a bullet wound through his head. A younger brother heard the shot and summoned Dr. McCutcheon and others. Schultz was found unconscious, in which condition he remained for twenty-seven hours after the shooting, when death took place. Mr. Schultz was thirty years of age and for several years had been the sole support of his mother, who is at present quite ill with rheumatism. For a number of years deceased was employed at Colby Bros. Mill. The shot was fired from a thirty-two caliber revolver, but whether accidentally or intentionally, is a mystery. Mr. Schultz was a quiet, well-behaved young man and his tragic death is generally regretted. The funeral took place on Saturday morning from St. Hedwig's Church, Father Pudlo officiating, interment taking place in the nearby cemetery.
