JOSEPH J. SCHUTZ, the present proprietor of the store at this point, was born Feb. 8, 1863, in the neighborhood where he now resides, and where he was reared, and has spent his life thus far. At the death of his father, he became the proprietor of the store at the Mills, in which business he still continues. He is deputy postmaster, and keeps the office in the store. He was married, in this county, Jan. 2, 1881, to Eliza J. McConnell, a native of Greene county, and a daughter of Andrew L. and Elizabeth McConnell. This marriage has been blessed with two children - Hattie and Harry. Mr. Schutz, although quite young, is an enterprising, go-ahead business man, who will doubtless meet with success in all his undertakings.
