Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 7, 1838
Death: Jun. 24, 1916
Outagamie County
Wisconsin, USA

Karl Friedrich "Ferdinand" Schultz was born in Grambow, Kreis Cammin, Pomerania, Prussia and immigrated to America in 1843 with his large family and over 1,500 "Alt Lutherans." He was the seventh child of Peter and Sophia Schultz. He worked as a farm laborer until 1861 when his father deeded forty acres of land to him; he later purchased another forty acres. He married Katharina Maria (Mary) Pirkner in 1863 in Outagamie County, Wisconsin. They had seven known children. Ferdinand, his wife and all children older than six worked extremely hard to survive: the unpainted wooden house had no central heating, no electricity, no indoor water supply, no inside plumbing, and no carpeting making it extremely difficult to survive the harsh Wisconsin winters. Outside there was a small barn that housed a few cows, a few chickens, and an occasional pig or two; the only horse also lived in the barn next to the wagon that transported them to church and to the railroad station to collect relatives who cme to visit. These animals were an absolute necessity for survival. Their lives were centered in their Lutheran Church where the births, marriages, and deaths of family and friends marked the years. By 1910 he and his wife were both seriously ill and cared for by their children. Ferdinand died on June 24, 1916 at age 78 and was buried in Trinity Lutheran Church cemetery.
