Our Schutte changed to Schuette around 1874. Heinrich Schutte imm. 1867 Appl. for citizenship in Madison county Illinois and married Maria Elizabeth Gerdelman in 1872 Madison Il. Had 3 children in Il. Then 3 children baptised in Bridgeton Mo. between 1876 & 1884. Purchased a farm in 1883 in Bridgeton Mo. Family story tells 2 brothers imm. ( more ? ) one settled in Illinois and one in Missouri. I am searching for brothers, sisters, parents. His brother could have been George born abt. 1852. this George I found, married in 1876 and died in 1878 in Missouri.I'm hoping to find out where and who he lived with from 1872 till 1883. We know he lived in Bridgeton Missouri on his farm till death in 1911 at which time his children ( 9 ) took over the farm until 1965 when property was sold to commercial.
