Today it is Grace (Weerts) Schultz
My Great-Great Aunt
Grace Weerts was born January 22, 1890 in Petkum, Ostfriesland, Germany and came to the United States with her parent & older brother (my Great-Grandfather) and sister in 1892, settling in Butler County, Iowa.
After 10 years of farming in Iowa, the Weerts family moved north to Minnesota where they operated a dairy farm.
Grace married Fred Schultz in 1911 and they farmed in rural Fairmont, Minnesota where they raised their 3 sons, until eventually moving into town.
In 1957, Grace died from complications of stomach cancer.
