Schoettler, Augusta #2 (11 SEP 1856 - 27 OCT 1939)
After three years of illness caused by old age and its complications, death came to release Augusta Schoettler from her suffering. She died October 27, which was the sixty-first anniversary of her wedding. She had reached the age of 83 years, one month, and 16 days. She was born in Germany Sept. 11, 1856, and there grew to womanhood. On Oct. 27, 1878 she was married to Albert Schoettler.
Mr. and Mrs. Schoettler came to America in May of 1881 and settled on a farm near Loyal where they have made their home for thirty years. They then moved into the village and lived here for fifteen years. Mr. Schoettler died in 1926. After his death she made her home with her daughter Mrs. Annie Vollrath until 1929. Then she lived with her daughter Mrs. Edna Bartline until 1933. For the past six years Mrs. Schoettler has made her home with her son Ernest who lives near Greenwood.
