EDWARD SCHULTZ, a former civil engineer and farmer of Veefkind, Sherman Township, who at one time filled the office of county surveyor, was born at Dunkirk, N. Y., May 1, 1866, and died at Veefkind, Nov. 21, 1910. He struck out for himself at an early age and educated himself as a civil engineer and surveyor,, in which capacity he surveyed the line of the "Soo" railroad from Marshfield to Greenwood, Clark County, through Veefkind, which later became his home, and where he married Mary Veefkind, daughter of Henry Born Veefkind. He also did the construction work on this line-of railroad and gave many years of his life to similar work in other sections, his work being always well done.


In 1901 he purchased the old Veefkind homestead, where the last ten years of his life were spent. He filled the position of postmaster at Veefkind after his father-in-law's death, in 1909,-until the rural route was established, when the office was abolished and for a time he was in partnership with John Veefkind in a stave and bolt mill located near the station. His service in the office of Clark County surveyor has been already mentioned. A man of elevated principles, he was a consistent member of the Presbyterian Church.


At his death--an event much regretted by the entire community--he left eight children: Lowell, Edna, Coba, Mary, Edward, Jr., Lester, Arlie and Margaret. His wife Mary, who was born in Holland, July 17, 1864, is now residing on the old family homestead at Veefkind, and conducts a general store. A genial pleasant lady, she is popular among a wide acquaintance.
