German American Death Notices from Humboldt, Nebraska
Notices of death in the German family published in the Humboldt, Nebraska German newspapers from the 1890s. The people mentioned were probably relatives and friends of the Schuetz family, who came to Humboldt from Canton Berne, Switzerland in 1870. Gottlieb Schuetz and Anna Parli were the second maternal great-grandparents of Bill Dean and his family who shared the documents at the History Harvest. Their daughter Maria (Mary) Schuetz, born in 1867 in Switzerland married German-born Dirk Sutorius in Humbolt, Nebraska in 1889. Their daughter Emma, born in 1890 married a recent emigrant from Germany (1908) Edo F. Harms in 1914. All three generations lived in Humboldt Nebraska in close proximity with various relatives. Their relatives and friends formed a strong German speaking community around the German Methodist Evangelical church established in Humboldt in 1879.
