The Family of Bill Dean collection includes many death notices cut out of mostly German-language newspapers. These two notices tell of Lucy (Lizzie) Schuetz's death of typhoid.
Born in 1879, she was the seventh child in the family of Swiss immigrants Gottlieb and Anna Schuetz. Before Lucy, the family had already lost an elder daughter, Elize, in 1877 and a son, Christian, in 1895, just a year before Lucy's death. Lucy's elder sister Maria was a maternal great-grandmother of the Bill Dean family.
