The Family of Bill Dean collection includes many death notices cut out of mostly German-language newspapers. This obituary tells of Katharina Schuetz's death in 1899, at the age of twenty-six.
Born in 1873, Katharina came from Switzerland and was the wife of Jacob Schuetz, whose parents Gottlieb and Anna Schuetz came from Canton Berne. She left two kids, and her husband married again in 1902.
Jacob's elder sister Maria (Mary) Schuetz, born in 1867 in Switzerland started the Dean family line.
