This a notice of marriage between John Schuetz and Anna Meister, printed in the German-language newspaper published in Humboldt, Nebraska. Born in 1875, a sixth child in the family of Swiss emigrants Gottlieb and Anna Schuetz, John Schuetz married at 26, probably after he became sure of his ability to support a family. The marriage took place not in church, but "in the parental home of the groom."
This clipping comes from the Family of Bill Dean collection, the fifth generation of Gottlieb and Anna Schuetz's descendants.
