Edwin Schultz was born in Chicago in January 1898. He married Emily Igel in February 1919 after he was mustered out of the army. His photograph, taken in 1918, shows him in his army uniform. He was living in Chicago with his wife and son, Edwin, Jr., as late as 1940.

Persons interested in these families can contact Craig Pfannkuche, our Society’s Corresponding
