        Text: George Schmitz, Sr., was born June 15, 1800 in Prussia, where he did 7 yrs military service, & then came to work in the city of Philadelphia to pay his debts. While there, he married Christina Wagner, who was born January 14, 1803, in Bavaria. Their oldest child, George, was born April 15, 1835. Their other children were Louisa, who died young, and Reuben who died when nineteen years old in the employ of the government during the Civil War, while at Cattanooga where he is buried. The family settled on their present homestead in 1837, where the father died July 18, 1884, & Christina, his wife, died January 11, 1894. George Schmitz, Jr., on April 22, 1855, married Sarah Elizabeth, daughter of Benjamin and Sarah Benfer Van Lehn. She was born June 30, 1837, & they have nine children: John Lewis, an attorney at law in Chillicothe, Missouri; Emma, deceased when four years old; William Josiah of Albert Lee, Minnesota, where he was Superintendent of Schools for several years; Caroline, wife of Oliver James Demuth, mentioned on page 28; Laura, deceased at sixteen months; Mary wife of Henry Bartles, deceased when forty-one years of age; Flora, wife of Rev. Paul Greider of Moravian Church, Brooklyn, New York; Cora, wife of George Mathias; and Victor Monroe, deceased when thirty-six years old. Mr. and Mrs. Schmitz are
        members of the Sharon Moravian Church. In politics he is a Republican. In the Civil War he was a soldier in Company F of the 161st Ohio. He has held various & responsible public trusts with the satisfaction of his friends & with credit to himself. During the 70 years that he has lived on the same farm he has seen the change of his neighborhood from a wilderness to a highly cultivated region. But this improvement has required much intelligent industry. His father was strong,
        active and resolute. In more prosperous days, he told of when he bought his
        first plow in New Philadelphia & carried it on his shoulders along the paths & across the hills to home
