  • Notes 
    • Xavier Schuller One of the oldest and best known citizens of St. Agatha died on Monday after a lengthy battle with Droppsy. Four months before his death the departed celebrated his 80th birthday. The departed came as a young man from Elsas to Canada and settled about one mile from St. Agatha. After his marriage he lived in a log house on his farm for 25 years and after celebrating their silver anniversary moved into a new stone house next to the log house. Twenty five years later they celebrated their golden wedding anniversary and left their old homestead and moved to St. Agatha to live out their remaining years. The couple had one child, a daughter, who with her husband Mr. Anton Strauss (a son of Mr. John Straus) live in the old homestead. The internment of the departed will be held Thursday following a requeim mass at St Agatha Catholic church. Internment will follow in the St. Agatha cemetary. The departed was a common citizen who served God and country. May he rest in peace.


      Extracted from the Berliner Journal dated April 12, 1905 (Translation from German by S.M. Fischer)

      ____________________

      A treasured story has been passed down through this family that when Xavier and Margaret Schuller settled in St. Agatha and began clearing the land and preparing the wood to build their house, they had to build fires around themselves at night to keep the wolves away. The sturdy house they built still stands today. After their marriage Johanna's parents lived with her grandparents in a separate part of the house. Mary and Anthony Strauss had six children but two died, one in infancy, a boy, and the second, Amanda, of diphtheria, at the age of six in 1902.....
