Schultz Family Genealogy Forum
I am searching for information photos of my GGgrandparents William and Mary Schultz or any of their relatives. I belive that William was killed in the Diamond Mine disaster in Diamond Ill.on 2/16/1883 at the age of 44. Haven't been able to locate his grave. Mary was born in Germany on 6/10/1840 and died 11/21/1910. Mary's maiden name was (Rawlatt or Raulatt). She is buried in Braceville cemetery outside of Coal City Ill. Her 1st husbands last name was (Miller?) and they had 5 children. She immigrated to the US in 1869. William and Mary had 3 children. Their daughter Minnie Murira Augusta Schultz Fulton Clark(11/30/1870-8/2/1948) is my Ggrandmother, she was born in Willow Springs Ill. Minnie's 1st husband Samuel Fulton is my Ggrandfather and he was killed in a coal mine explosion in Carbon Hill Ill in January 1901. If the William Schultz who died in Diamond is my GGgrandfather then I know he had a brother named John. Minnie's sister Josie burned to death in the 1870's. Minnie's brother Herman A. "Harry" Schultz was born in 1882 and died in 1970.Harry was married to Clara L. Schuessler(1896-1965). They are buried in Braceville cemetery. Any help appreciated.
