Death Notice, Maggie Eliza Schuetz, 1910
The Family of Bill Dean collection includes many death notices cut out of mostly German-language newspapers. This death notice tells of Maggie Eliza Schuetz's death in 1910, at the age of sixteen.
Born in 1894, Maggie Eliza was most probably the daughter of Jacob and Katharina Schuetz. Her mother died in 1899 leaving behind a husband and two kids. Her father Jacob married again in 1902 and had eight more surviving kids by 1930.
Jacob's elder sister Maria (Mary) Schuetz, Maggie Eliza's aunt, born in 1867 in Switzerland started the Dean family line.
