SCHULTZ

 

Peter Schultz, Sr.

 

Peter Schultz was born on 26 Mar 1813 in Germany/Bavaria, married Mary/Maria Goth/Guth (probably in Erie Co NY as she had been in Buffalo since 1827 when she was 8), died on 1 Sep 1881 in Buffalo, Erie Co NY, and is buried in Forest Lawn Cemetery, Erie Co NY. According to cemetery records, his address at death was 733 Genesse, Buffalo NY.

 

Mary/Maria Guth/Goth/Groath was born on 3 Apr 1819 in Germany/Bavaria, died on 23 Feb 1903 in Buffalo, Erie Co NY, and is also buried in Forest Lawn Cemetery, Buffalo NY. Mary/Maria's father was Adam Guth/Goth. According to her death certificate, she has been in the US for 76 years, the last 75 of which were in Buffalo NY. Based on this statistic, her family immigrated to the US in 1827 at the age 8. According to the magazine "The Pennsylvania Mennonite", the surname GOOD was translated from GUTH. And, according to Sharon Simon, a Clarence Center researcher, the Schultz and Wise families were all living in and among the Good's and Frick's in census records - and these families were all Mennonites who came from Lancaster PA - a very prominent Mennonite area.

 

A search of the IGI lists the following (relation unknown): Maria Elisabetha Goth, daughter of Adam and Maria Elisabetha (Defren) Goth, christened 27 Aug 1816 at the Evangelisch-Reformierte Kirche Mutterstadt, Evangelisch, Pfalz, Bayern (Bavaria) Germany. Relation unknown.

 

According to the 1850 Federal Census, Peter, age 37, was list as having been born in Germany (in 1855 and 1860, he lists his birthplace as "Bavaria" and in the 1865 census he lists his birthplace as "Germania"). His oldest child, Peter (age 12 in 1850), was listed as being born in New York. According to a study of the Buffalo (NY) City Directory, Peter Schultz appears in Buffalo for the first time in 1841. With all this information, we can assume that Peter migrated to the United States sometime between his birth in 1813 and 1838. It is possible he migrated with his family, or he could have married Mary/Maria in Germany in circa 1837 and they came over as a new couple.

 

In 1841, when he first appeared in the Buffalo City Directory, he is listed as being a Grocer on Genesse Street and living in "German Alley". In 1849, he is listed as operating a grocery store and a lumberyard. By 1862, Peter is listed under "Groceries and Provisions". In 1875, he must have sold his grocery store because he lists no occupation in the directory. The following year (1876), he is listed as a Farmer and in 1877 he is listed as a Hay Dealer. Peter is listed one last time in 1880 (one year before his death) as a Laborer living at 97 E. Genesee. In 1882 Mary begins to appear in the Buffalo City Directory with the title "Mrs. Mary Schultz". She lists her occupation as a dealer in "Flour & Feed".

 

For more census and city directory information, please see the end of this chapter.

 

Peter's death notice was located in the 2 Sep 1881 edition of the Buffalo (NY) Evening Post, pg 4:

 

Died. Schultz--In this city, Sept 1 (1881), Peter Schultz, Sr., aged 68 years, 5 months and 6 days. Funeral from his late residence, 253 Genesee street, Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, and from Zion's Church, on Lemon street, at 2:30 o'clock.

Below is the transcribed marriage proposal request of Reuben P. Schultz to Mr. L.H. Irwin, father of Annie Jane Irwin:

 

Dear Sir:

I think you will not be surprised when I tell you that I am going to request of you a gift, the greatest a father can bestow on man. This gift is your daughter.

Having disclosed to Miss Irwin, my affection for her, and learned that it was reciprocated, I feel it my duty to inform you of the fact and gain, if possible, your consent to the natural consequence of the disclosure, our being united.

I am now in good, not excellent, circumstances. My prospects are fair. I say this because I am not in business for myself and therefore am in a measure, dependent on the goodwill of my present employers: my character I might add is unstained having always striven to be upright and honorable which anybody with whom I ever came into contact will be pleased to reiterate should you desire proof.

I assure you my love for Miss Irwin is deep and devoted and if you listen favorable to my plea it will be the height of my ambition to make her happy.

Anxiously awaiting your reply,

I remain

Yours truly

 

Reuben P. Schultz

Reuben and Annie Jane had one child:

 

1.     Elizabeth C, born 30 Oct 1898 Buffalo, Erie Co NY, married Walter J. Schutt, died of tuberculosis 11 May 1921 Clarence, Erie Co NY, buried Fillmore Cemetery, Erie Co NY. Elizabeth and Walter were found in the 1920 Buffalo, Eric Co, NY census living with his parents, George and Elizabeth Schutt. See the Census section below for details.

 

A reference to Elizabeth was located in an edition (probably 2/1902) of the Derrick (Oil City, PA):

 

Miss Elizabeth Schultz, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R.P. Schultz of West Fourth Street, who has been in a precarious condition for the past week from an attack of diphtheria, is improving as rapidly as can be expected.

 

Annie Jane suffered from a respiratory ailment and traveled to the high, arid climate of the desert southwest - East Las Vegas Nevada - to seek relief. Here are two newspaper references:

 

Las Vegas Optic 25 Oct 1909

 

Mrs. R. P. Schultz and daughter, Elizabeth C. Schultz, arrived in the city last evening from their home at Oil City, Pa., and will leave tomorrow morning for Harvey's ranch resort, where they will spend several weeks.

 

Las Vegas Optic, 9 Nov 1909 (year uncertain)

 

Mrs. R. P. Schultz and daughter of Oil City, Pa., are visiting are Harvey's ranch and will probably spend the winter there.

 

The following is a telegram, dated 31 Jul 1910, which was sent by Annie's mother Mrs. L.H. (Sarah) Irwin in East Las Vegas New Mexico to L.H. Irwin in Rouseville, PA. The telegram was received by the Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) office in Rouseville and telephoned to the Irwin residence where an Olive Irwin accepted the news:

To: L.H. Irwin, Rouseville, Pa.

 

Annie died this morning leave tomorrow via Meadville wire particulars.

 

Mrs. L.H. Irwin

Reuben's second wife was Minnie Albertine Sandberg, born on 16 Dec 1888 in Wrightsville, Warren Co PA and died 16 Jan 1962 in Titusville, Venango Co PA, and is buried in Rynd Farm Cemetery, Rouseville, Venango Co PA. Minnie's parents are Oscar Albert and Christine Matilda (Sandburg) Sandberg. Please see the Sandburg and Sandberg chapters for more information on these lines.

 

Reuben's and Minnie's wedding was announced in the 29 Feb 1920 edition of the Oil City (PA) Derrick:

 

Schultz-Sandberg

 

Reuben P. Schultz of Oil City and Miss Minnie Sandberg of Youngsville, were married by Rev. Dr. Norris A. White at the First Methodist Episcopal church parsonage on Sunday. Mr. and Mrs. Schultz will make their home in Oil City--Franklin correspondent to Oil City (PA) Derrick. The bride was a former employee in the Pennsylvania Gas office in this city.

 

 

The following are a series of newspaper references to Reuben Peter Schultz in as chronological an order as possible:

 

Buffalo (NY) Evening News, date unknown, probably 1890's

WERE CAPTURED AT THE PISTOL'S POINT

 

--Four Buffalo Sportsmen Were Outrageously Treated by the Canadian Game Wardens at Ft Erie.--

 

Details of the capture of four Buffalo sportsmen [including R. P. Schultz] and confiscation of their guns, boats and 'munitions by Canadian game wardens are beginning to leak out. From the facts already learned, it would appear that the Canadian authorities were unusually severe and that they may have been prompted by other than motives of protecting game.

 

From what is known the four men sailed in two boats last Sunday and set out on the Niagara Rover to shoot ducks. They hovered about Buckhorn Island, which is on the American side, for some time, but were unsuccessful in getting any game, so they rowed down to Navy Island, on the Canadian side. According to witnesses they had not fired a shot when two Canadian game wardens bore down on upon them in separate boats and demanded their surrender.

 

At the point of drawn revolvers the four Buffalonians were compelled to row to Chippewa with the wardens and from there they were taken before Magistrate James at Fort Erie.

 

There the magistrate is said to have given them a severe lecture an to have given then fined each $25, the maximum penalty for the alleged offense, confiscated their guns, valued at $175 and the two boats, valued at $50. In addition, they were also assessed the costs, amounting to $39.65.

 

The victims of this supposed justice have arranged to recover, if possible, their property and to have the wrong which they believed done them, corrected.

 

They have retained a Toronto attorney, who yesterday, with one of the victims, called on the Hon. F. R. Latchford of Toronto, and that gentleman promised to have Chief Game Warden Tinsley make a thorough investigation of the case.

 

Mr. Latchford said that from what he had heard of the case he believes that the Americans had not been properly treated by the officers, but said he would not take any action in the matter until all the facts in the case had been laid before him and the confiscated property taken to Toronto.

Will Not Litigate.

Young Men Arrested Near Navy Island by Canadian Authorities Merely Want Penalties Reduced.

 

Washington B. French and J.B. French, of 1125 Delaware Avenue, with R.P. Schultz and A. Morris, were the young Buffalo men arrested near Navy Island last Sunday on the charge of hunting without a license and taken before Canadian authorities by whom they were fined $25 each, their guns confiscated and costs also imposed on them, amounting to a penalty of about $200 in each instance. The dispatch in the Buffalo Evening News yesterday stated that the young men would appeal to the higher Canadian officials for relief from the excessive penalties imposed.

 

John B. French said to a News reporter today that "the course of the Canadian magistrate was unusual in that he imposed the maximum penalty as for an old offender, in the case of each man. The cases will not be litigated for we have merely sought through an attorney to have the penalty fixed by the justice reduced to something like a decent figure. Magistrate James said he did not impose the maximum, but I was shown the law and state that he did go to the limit."

The victory came too late, however, as the prize will go to Company B, whose team won four of the nine claims made upon it. The other companies that have been successfully represented are: Company F, twice; Company H, twice; and Company C, once. Company C's winning team was made up as follows: Private R.P. Schultz, 68; Corporal R.C. McKeown, 63; Sergeant F. B. Pratt, 62; Private A.W. Martin, 59; Total 252.

Private Schultz's score of 68 was the highest individual mark made last night. Company B, knowing that it could not lose, merely entered it second team to fill in the gap. The contest has been one of exceptional interest and has proved a good investment for the officers and has enabled the regiment to ascertain where its best shots can be picked from. The trophy for volley firing is still being decided.

 

[NOTE: The Union's 74th New York Regiment-Infantry was originally organized in 1854, defended Washington DC in 1862, and saw many battles in the Civil War, including Gettysburg. It is now a National Guard unit.]

74th ATHLETES TRAINING

 

The 74th R.A.A. gymnasium has its usual classes practicing last evening, R.P. Schultz the instructor, giving members a lively time. After classes he taught them many interesting athletic tricks which they greatly appreciated. There was a good game of handball in which the onlookers were interested.

The best-developed and fines-formed man in Buffalo, so the doctors claim, is a young man named Schultz, who lives on S. Division Street near Michigan. His erect carriage and bundles of muscles are due solely to his own hard work. Several years ago one of his relatives died of consumption followed a few months later by another relative. The doctors told when he inquired that the disease was inherited in his family and advised him to take good care of himself. About that time he became interested in Sandow and bought a book from the pen of that modern Sampson in which he told how he became strong. In it was a treatise for those who desired to follow in his footsteps. Schultz began to follow the advice laid down and today he is as physically perfect as it is possible for a man to become. Several times he has been before classes in the Niagara Medical University and it considered by the doctors who have examined him to be a phenomenon.

Buffalo Strong Boy

 

Buffalo has other strong boys that Bertram, who failed to do Sandow's tricks on Thursday night. This evening, R.P. Schultz of the 74th Regiment will be given a medal of Sandow at the Lyceum for the best development shown by Buffalo boys who have followed his system of training. A year ago, Schultz was dying supposedly with consumption, but today he has almost as much development as Sandow, and all through physical exercise.

Reuben Schultz, winner "Sandow" Medal

[Note: medal dated 18 Dec 1895]

 

 

Buffalo Evening News, exact date unknown, circa December 1895

 

Reuben Schultz, who won Sandow's Medal for the man showing the best development after following his treatment, entertained [probably at the above program following the awarding of his medal] with feats of strength. He is a member of the regiment and would be invaluable in time of war. It would be a small chore for him to scamper off the field of battle with several British cannon under his arms.

 

 

A review of the December 1895 Buffalo Evening News (on microfilm) reveals that Sandow was performing at Buffalo's Lyceum Theater (named after a school that the Aristotle founded in 335BC) during the middle of the month. Here is a sample of the 18 Dec 1895 ad:

 

SANDOW THE GREAT

[at the] LYCEUM

Matinees Tues, Thurs, Sat.

Trocadero Novelties

The Greatest Show of the Season

Every Number a Feature

Next Week: Joe Hart

 

Sandow's show on Monday 16 Dec 1895 was recorded in the Tuesday 17 Dec 1895 edition of the Buffalo Evening News:

 

SANDOW'S GREAT FEAT

The "Perfect Man" Supports 2300 Pounds of Flesh and Iron---Minstrels at the Star---Other Shows

 

The last curtain at the Lyceum Theater Monday night fell upon a scene that would have made Hercules shudder. In the center of the stage was Eugene Sandow, his hands and feet resting on the boards, and his gnarled chest and stomach supporting a platform. On the platform were his four attendants, and all the weights that the "perfect man" uses in his performance. The combined avoirdupois was 2300 pounds. It was the first time that Sandow had ever presented this feat in this country, which gained his greatest fame in London. Another new thing was the lifting of a 700-pound block by the middle finger of his right hand. Sandow's posing and muscle dancing were well done, and the physical marvel received hearty applause.

But Sandow is by no means the only great feature of the Trocadero vaudeville show. M. O'Gust, a Frenchman, was really the star. His imitations of musical instruments and animals was wonderful. Without artificial aid he gave a trombone solo perfectly and in response to an encore rendered a cornet solo.

The performance includes August Dowell, gymnast; the Lucifers, high-kickers; Kauffman, the bicyclist; the five Jordans, in remarkable aerial feats; Amann, facial imitator, and Billy Vann, comedian.

 

 

Sandow's show on Thursday 19 Dec 1895 was recorded in the Friday 18 Dec 1895 edition of the Buffalo Evening News:

 

Bartram Didn't Beat Sandow

Bert Bertram, Buffalo's strong man, appeared at the Lyceum last evening, and tried to lift Sandow's big dumb-bell. He failed to so through he did lift a part of lighter weight that Sandow used to perform with.

Hugh McGuire Is Patched With 360 Pieces of Borrowed Skin, and Will Probably Be Out Soon.

 

Hugh McGuire, the Nickel Plate yardmaster, was operated upon for probably the last time at the Emergency Hospital yesterday. In all over 360 particles of skin have been grafted on his badly burned leg, and the surgeons of the hospital say that McGuire will be able to be around with a week. The operation has proved a success in every way. The skin grafted is healing over the extensive wound fast, and as McGuire has recovered from the severe shock there is nothing in the way of complete recovery.

 

The men who submitted to the surgeon's knife yesterday were John Driscoll, Reuben Schultz, Louis Helms, John Murphy, John Quinn, Michael Hartigan, A.J. Kenny and a man who declined to give his name. Schultz had more skin sliced from his arm than any of the other men, the doctors taking 25 pieces. He is the young man who recently won the Sandow physical development medal. About 90 particles of skin in all were applied to the wound yesterday.

CLOSE CALL FOR TENOR.

Sheehan Coliseum Tenor, Has Narrow Escape from Drowning at Euclid Beach.

 

Jospeph Sheehan, leading tenor with the Sheehan Opera Co at the Coliseum gardens, narrowly escaped drowning at Euclid beach, Lake Erie, yesterday, only prompt action on the part of R.P. Schultz preventing a tragedy.

 

With the other members of the company, Sheehan was swimming. He swam out nearly a mile beyond the piers, swimming easily, and then headed for shore. Suddenly, his strength gave out, and those who were in shallow water at once saw his distress.

 

Schultz, a member of the Buffalo Athletic Club, swam rapidly to Sheehan's aid and after a hard struggle, succeeded in towing him to shore.

Mr. R. P. Schultz, City

 

Dear Sir,

 

Have been trying to see you at your place of business and also your father at his place of business.

Have been unable to find you and feel it my duty to let you know at once what the conclusion of the N.Y. Life is in your case.

They want you to live four more years more before they consider your case. I judge there is something not just satisfactory in y?????????????????????

You need not say in any examination that you may have for any other company that you have been rejected by any company as they agree to consider your case again in four years if you wish.

The John Hancock Company would probably take you on their industrial plan. I consider them far ahead of the Metropolitan and will call on you as soon as I can to show you their plan.

 

Very truly yours,

A very interesting article on Reuben's life was recorded in the Friday 3 Aug 1951 edition of the Titusville (PA) Herald:

 

SIDEWALKS OF HYDETOWN

By Harry Ridgway

 

Hydetown (PA), Aug. 2--The diminutive 78 year old "Rube" Schultz is a remarkable little chap. He and his wife reside at their own and well-kept home at 215 Maple Avenue, Oil City.

Mr. Schultz, still possessing the same set of teeth that nature gave him, a good head of not-too-gray hair and tipping the scales at 130 after a good meal, is a retired P.R.R. freight engineer. For as many as 35 years the name of R.P Schultz graced the sheets of train dispatchers, yard masters and crew dispatchers. He had a reputation for getting his train over the road consistent with safety and minimum of delay.

Even before he had reached the age of 65, or the optional retirement age, Rube had made up his mind he wouldn't make the error that he had seen of so many other railroaders, that of waiting too long. At that age, 13 years ago, he went on a pension, which, even with today's high prices, affords him a good income. Had he remained on until he was 70 years old, he would have earned at least $22,000 more. But by his own admission he has no regrets as he has enjoyed his retirement.

For many years Rube "pulled" BF-1 and BF-2 between Oil City and Buffalo. These were merchandise freight runs and it was necessary that they reach their respective destinations with the least of delay and oftentimes they carried much perishable freight.

Until last July 14 this writer hadn't seen Rube for nearly a quarter century when the old friendship was renewed at the railroad picnic near Olean. If memory serves, the last time I saw him then was when he as in hi prime, sailing by JR tower on the right side of a "hog" and waving a cordial greeting with a hand and arm encased in a heavy leather glove.

Rube may be remembered by a few old-time towermen as a beautiful handwriter. This was noted in the messages he left at towers to be telegraphed to headquarters. It was in sharp contrast to the scrawl of most of his fellow-workers.

Mr. Schultz entered the service of the P.R.R. in 1901 as firemen. As promotion was rapid in that era, he soon was sitting on the right side of the locomotive. Upon retirement he had completed nearly 38 years of service. Just how many hundreds of thousands of miles he has ridden in iron horses and how many millions of tons of freight he has hauled would even tax the imagination.

At the picnic Rube recalled with a smile: "You remember "Red" Hist. Well, he hired out just two days ahead of me. But in that time almost fifty firemen had gone to work between us. As they kept quitting, the gap between us got narrower and narrower and after a number of years we were together. He was always from then on just one man ahead of me and could always "bump" me."

While we were talking together at the picnic a man walked up to Rube and shook hands. "Don't you 'member me, Rube?" he asked. "I used to fire for you along time ago."

The little ex-hogger looked at the other and then shook his head. But when the man gave his name, Rube's face lighted up. The hands of the clock were momentarily turned back.

The retire engineer has been in numerous wrecks, but was never seriously hurt. He has seen many of 'em bent, twisted and strewn around. His closest call to what could have been a bad rear-ender occurred one night at Sherman, N.Y;, many years ago.

"A heavy blanket of fog not over fifteen feet high completely obscured a short train standing at the block signal and ready to go." Rube recalled. "I was behind him and had received a caution block at the other tower. But I could plainly see his clear block above the fog and thought it was for me. Suddenly two dim red lights peered at me from out of the fog and I dropped her in the 'big hole.' I got stopped within two feet of his cabin."

Today, even in spite of advance years, Rube Schultz is enjoying a well-earned retirement. He is kept busy maintaining a half-acre of lawn and shrubs at his home. He goes fishing, swimming and even still loves to dive. His agility is equal that of a man several decades younger and the muscles of his arms are still hard.

Recently a large tree blew down on his "estate." He promptly got busy with ax and saw and in a short time the tree was made into fireplace wood. Not much of a radio fan, Rube loves to spend hi winter evenings close to the fireplace in an easy chair and deeply engrossed in a good book.

A great little guy-this Rube Schultz. Nice to talk to and nice to know.

 

 

Reuben died on 4 Jan 1957. According to his death certificate, he was the son of Peter and Catherine (Wise) Schultz and he died as a result of hypertensive cardiovascular disease (high blood pressure).

 

Reuben's obituary was located - but the date and name of the paper are unknown (although it was probably clipped from the Oil City (PA) Derrick):

 

Retired Railroad Engineer, 82, Succumbs To Illness

 

Ruben P. Schultz, 82, of 215 Maple Street, popular retired railroad engineer, died at 8:30 p.m. Friday (5 Jan 1957) in his home following several week's illness.

Born in Buffalo, N.Y., September 29, 1874, he was the son of Peter and Catherine Wise Schultz.

He was educated in Buffalo and moved to Oil City in 1902.

While in Buffalo, he was engaged in various occupations. He was employed by the Union Steamboat Co., Barnes-Hengerer Co;, and the Union Transit Co.

He was a member of Co. C, 74th Regiment, and physical director of the regiment for seven years prior to entering employment with the Pennsylvania Railroad as fireman in 1902.

Promoted to engineman in freight service in 1907, Mr. Schultz continued in that capacity until his retirement on September 28, 1939, after 38 years of service.

He was married February 29, 1920, to the former Minnie Sandberg of Youngsville. He was a resident of Oil City since 1902.

He was a member of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Engineers, and I.O.O.F. Lodge No. 589.

Things I remember about my Mother, Minnie Albertine (Sandberg) Schultz

by Christine Elizabeth Schultz nee Hogg

 

Mother was in her late forties when I was born, so I only know by hearsay about her younger years. What stands out in my mind is, that after completing 8th grade, she took a test. After passing the test, she was qualified to teach in a one-room schoolhouse somewhere near Garland or Wrightsville in Western Pennsylvania. She was about 18-19 years old and boarded away from home.

She must have been lonely her first winter away from her many sisters. I still have two lovely sewing projects she worked on that winter. One was of four butterflies. She paid $5.00 to a teacher to show her how to do it. This included the cost of the material. . I wonder what the equivalent of $5.00 would be by today's standard! She was the only sister to teach, and even now I am so proud of her doing that.

There are some pictures of her in beautiful clothes and also bathing suits. I know she did like beautiful clothes and it was sad that by the time I was born there was very little money for that category. She was a sociable person and liked to have a good time. I know she liked to dance and go to the beach. The Sandberg smorgasbords at holiday times were awesome. Had she had the opportunity, I know she would have loved to travel.

When I was Pre School (and supposedly settled in bed for the night) I would sneak downstairs midway and peek through the banisters to listen to her playing the piano. I thought that was the most beautiful sound I had ever heard. She played the type of music that people sang to in those days. "My Bonnie Lies over the Ocean", "I'll take you home again Kathleen", I've been working on the Rail Road' just to mention a few. She also played marches for the drill work that the Ladies Auxiliary of the Railroad Locomotive Engineers performed at their frequent meetings. Her favorite hymn was "Have Thy Own Way Lord"

Much to my embarrassment, she was active in the PTA. In those days, one did not appreciate having parents be seen or heard on behalf of their children at school or church.

The summer I turned four, (actually I was three months shy of four) she walked with me to the public swimming pool and bought me a season ticket. Thereafter, I went by myself and it was where I lived for three months of every year on through high school until marriage. I have always been grateful that she gave me money every year for that opportunity. She never begrudged me a nice bathing suit either, no matter how expensive. After Reuben retired, their income was $114.00 a month. When I married, Robert's income was three times that much. And he had a CAR!

Minnie was a wonderful cook, not too keen on housework, but loved to iron. Wash day was a big ordeal. She literally spent all day in the basement with two big utility tubs and a wringer washing machine. She also liked to work in the yard. Unfortunately, the soil on Hasson Heights was all rock or clay. During WW II, she and Reuben would get on a city bus and go to Grandview Road (north east of Oil City) to work a "victory garden". A farmer had donated several acres of his land for anyone from town that wanted to do this. It seems funny to imagine people getting on a city bus with garden tools.

Most New Year's eve Minnie would see the New Year in by herself. She traditionally tied off a quilt (as it was inaccurately called.) One would take a very old and shabby looking blanket. Nice sheets were placed on both outer sides, and then yarn would be brought through to hold it together. I forget how close each yarn tie was but I am guessing about 4 inches. This would take quite awhile and it is not likely that she would have finished it. I suppose it was symbolically something new for the New Year. And to get some more wear out of a precious wool blanket. The sheets would have been white, so the yarn was usually a bright color. She never mixed yarn colors (which would have been pretty.) Sheets with colored patterns were not available until many decades later. I remember helping her a couple of times, but it was a tedious project.

 

Reuben and Minnie had two children:

 

1.     Robert Melvin, born 9 Aug 1923 Oil City, Venango Co PA, married (1) Barbara Burwell 8 Feb 1948 Oil City, Venango Co PA, (2) Marsha ___??_____ in March 1967, died 25 May 1986 in North Penn Hospital, Lansdale PA. Barbara was born xx/xx/xxxx in Oil City, Venango Co PA.

2.     Christine Elizabeth, born xx/xx/xxxx Oil City, Venango Co PA, married Robert Arthur Hogg 24 Aug 1952 Oil City, Venango Co PA.

 

The Christine Elizabeth Schultz and Robert Arthur Hogg wedding was reported in the Monday 25 Aug 1952 edition of the Oil City (PA) Derrick:

 

WED HERE SUNDAY

 

A lawn reception late Sunday afternoon followed the wedding in which Miss Christine Schultz, pictured above, became the bride of Robert Arthur Hogg of Slippery Rock.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R. P. Schultz of Maple Avenue, Hasson Heights, and Mr. and Mrs. Calvin C. Hogg of Slippery Rock are parents of the bridegroom.

Dr. Norman R. Adams officiated at the double ring rite at 3:30 p.m. yesterday in the First Presbyterian Church.

Mrs. Paul Stormer, organist, played a prelude of numbers including "Prayer" and "Garden of Faith." She also presented the traditional wedding marches by Wagner and Mendelssohn as processional and recessional for the wedding party.

Miss Anne Sherman, violinist, played, "Salute d' Amour," Mendelssohn; and overture to Thaiss by Massenet, to organ accompaniment.

The vocal numbers, "Because," d'Hardelot; and "the Lord's Prayer," were sung by Lester Stuck.

The bride's only jewelry was a pearl necklace, gift of the bridegroom. Given in marriage by her father, she appeared in a Chantilly lace gown with jacket, styled with short sleeves and high ruffled neckline. She wore matching lace mitts and an embroidered satin Juliet cap studded with seed pearls secured her brief veil. A white orchid and satin streamers crested her white Bible.

Honor attendants to the bride were Mrs. Roger Burtner (Louise) of Orangeville, sister of the bridegroom, who wore yellow Chantilly lace and net and Miss Margaret Weidle, who appeared in an aqua costume. Clusters of forget-me-nots decorated the sides of the mesh Dutch caps in colors to match their gowns. Carnations in those colors in their colonial bouquets were encircled with similar flowers in white.

Theodore Hogg of Slippery Rock was bet man and Robert M. Schultz of Dover, N.J., was head usher. They are brothers of the wedding couple. Ushers were Charles and Edward Gamble of Fredonia.

White gladioli and fern framed by ivy and roses formed the setting for the wedding rite.

A three-tier cake crested with a miniature bridal couple centered the bride's table at the lawn reception at the Schultz home. The cake was encircled in ivy and gladioli blooms on white satin streamers.

The serving table was centered with a mixed bouquet in a gold glass statue-vase. Yellow and aqua, colors of the attendant's costumes were used in the flowers and streamers.

Aides were Mrs. Robert M. Schultz of Dover, N.J.; Misses Lois and Naomi Hogg, twin sisters of the bridegroom; Misses N. Jane Corle, Marion Smith and Patricia Shreffler, all of this city.

The bride was attired in a suit of lilac hue and white accessories as the couple left for Cleveland, O., where they will take a boat tour of the Great Lakes. She wore her wedding orchid.

Mr. and Mrs. Hogg will reside in Fredonia where the bridegroom has accepted the position as vocational agriculture instructor in Fredonia-Delaware High School. He graduated from Penn State college and Slippery Rock High School and belongs to Alpha Tau Alpha, national honorary fraternity.

Mrs. Hogg graduated from Oil City High School and has been employed in the Oil City Trust Company bank.

The wedding was attended by residents of Titusville, Meadville, Fredonia, Slippery Rock, Orangeville, Butler and Dover, N.J.
