Schultz, William (23 MAY 1852 - 21 JUN 1937)

William Schultz, aged 85, a pioneer resident of the Cadott community, passed away in the home of his son, Alvin, in the town of Sigel at three o’clock Monday morning after an extended illness cause by the general infirmities of his advanced age. Mr. Schultz is the father of Mrs. Agnes Spaeth of this city (Owen, Clark Co., Wis.) and has spent much of the past two years here.

William Schultz was born at Mayville, May 23, 1852, and went to Chippewa County at the age of 15. After residing there for several years, he moved to Minnesota. He was united in marriage to Bertha Spiegler at Portage, 59 years ago and then moved to Cadott. Mr. Schultz operated a meat market there for several years and 18 years ago moved onto a farm in the town of Sigel. He was preceded in death by his wife 21 years ago. Since that time he has been making his home with his children, spending most of his time with his son, Alvin, on the home farm, and a great deal of the past two years with his daughter, Mrs. Agnes Spaeth, here.

Besides his wife, Mr. Schultz was preceded in death by two children who died in infancy. He is survived by three daughters and two sons, Mrs. John Rollins of Spencer, Mrs. Agnes Spaeth of Owen, Mrs. Ernest Munroe and August and Alvin Schultz, all of Sigel. Eleven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren also survive.

Funeral services were held in St. John’s Lutheran Church at two o’clock Thursday afternoon, Rev. K. Bubeck officiating, and interment was made in the Cadott Cemetery.

Those from here who attended the funeral were Mrs. and Mrs. Elmer King, Mrs. Roy Graham and daughter, Doris, Lionel Legault, Mrs. James Haire, Mrs. D.R. Richardson, Mrs. Chris Bacon and Mrs. Agnes Spaeth.
