Schultz, Henry (11 MAY 1851 - 26 NOV 1916)

Sunday evening, Nov. 26, 1916, marked the passing of Henry Schultze into the great beyond. Mr. Schultze was among the earliest settlers in what is now the town of Worden, Clark County, Wis. and was much respected as a friend and neighbor. His death was caused by heart failure and occurred within an hour of a sudden attack at about nine o'clock Sunday evening at his home. Mr. Schultze was born in Schleswig, Holstein, Germany, on May 11, 1851, where he grew to manhood, acquiring an excellent education during his boyhood days. In 1880 he was united in marriage with Miss Frances Hinsch, at Hamburg, Germany, and in 1882 they came to this country and directly to Thorp, and located in the woods, now their present farm. Here Mr. Schultze carved out a home, and surround by his family, enjoyed the blessings of a comfortable home for many years. Since the organization of the town of Worden twenty-two years age, he has filled the office of town clerk in a most acceptable and honorable manner. He leaves to mourn, his wife and nine children, Hans, Mrs. Arthur Johnson of Stanley, Frank, Theodore, Mrs. Helmuth Dueysen of Stanley, Robert, Max, Martin and Daniel. The funeral took place yesterday afternoon, Rev. Schwertferger of Withee, officiating, interment following in the German Cemetery in the town of Worden.
