Christ Schultz is occupying and operating a twenty-acre farm on section 6, Wilson township, where he is doing a general farming business. He was born in Prussia, Germany, February 28, 1865, a son of Christ and Louisa (Winter) Schultz, both natives of the fatherland, in which country they spent their entire lives. Christ Schultz was educated in the parochial schools of his native land and was employed at agricultural pursuits until he attained the age of twenty-two years, when he emigrated to the new world, and coming direct to Wisconsin, settled in Sheboygan. He began working in a factory here and was thus employed for twelve years. He then purchased a twenty-acre tract of land which he now owns on section 6, Wilson township, and there he has since made his home. He pursues a diversified system of farming, has improved his farm and brought it under a high state of cultivation and is succeeding in business.
Mr. Schultz was married in Germany, May 8, 1887, to Miss Louisa Zimmerman, a native of Prussia, Germany. She was a daughter of Frederick and Christina (Falk) Zimmerman and a sister of Ernest Zimmerman, who has a factory north of Sheboygan. She also has a brother, Fred, and a sister, Mrs. Christ Ballow, who reside in that city. Unto Mr. and Mrs. Schultz have been born three children, Elizabeth, Frieda, and Emil, aged respectively fifteen, fourteen and twelve years, all yet at home. Mr. Schultz is a democrat, finding, however, little time to devote to matters of a political nature. He is a member of the German Lutheran church of Sheboygan Falls, being a liberal supporter of that organization. Mr. Schultz is one of the highly respected and well known citizens of Wilson township, and is thoroughly representative of the successful farming class and one who has many and true friends.
