Schulz, Mr./Mrs. August (60th Anniv. - 31 Aug. 1941)
Mr. and Mrs. August Schulz observed their sixtieth wedding anniversary on Sunday. Their five children, 23 grand children and 16 great grand children all were present for the great event. Dinner was served and covers were laid for fifty-five guests.
Mr. Schulz came to the United States from Germany, at the age of 17, and settled at Sheboygan, Wis. Sixty-five years ago he came to Colby when this community was still a vast wilderness.
Mrs. Schulz was born at Cleveland, Wis., and came to the town of Green Grove with her parents some years later.
Mr. and Mrs. Schulz were married sixty years ago at Green Grove and settled on a tract of wild land, and, by hard work and privations, they made it into a fine farm which is now owned by their son, Ernst.
They witnessed the great changes of the world from the days of the oxen to the present time of the automobile and airplane. They have reached the ages of 88 and 81 respectively.
