Person: Harry Roy Washington Schultz (1897-1966)

This week, WeRelate looks at the Person Page of Harry Roy Washington Schultz, born 26 February 1897 in Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio, son of Frank Schultz (1874-1953) and Katherine Fredericka Van Duzen (1879-1930). After returning from France after World War I, Harry Schultz married Nellie Lindsey Hedger on April 14, 1919. They had four sons, Harley McCracken Schultz, Marshall Frank Schultz, Darwin Lindsey Schultz and Alvin Russell Schultz. After the death of his wife Nellie in 1948, Harry was remarried to Lorraine Lauderbach. He served with the Newport, Kentucky Fire Department for 22 years until his retirement, becoming Assistant Chief of Engine Company No. 3 (Clifton/South Newport) in 1959. Harry and his second wife both died under mysterious and unfortunate circumstances a few months apart in 1966. This Person Page, is a good example of the type of Page that you can add to WeRelate for your ancestors. (learn more...)
