Schutte/Schutt of Rochester

Schutte/Schutt of Rochester

Surnames: Schutte, Schutt, Foster, Mullen
I am looking for more info on the Schutte/Schutt family of Rochester. I have traced them back to Frederick Schutte (1857 – 1924) and Anna M. Schroeder (1863 – 1909), both born in Germany and I believe burried at Mount Hope Cemetery in Rochester. One of their sons, Paul is my Grandfather and I have run into a wall with this part of my family. I am greatful to anyone that could offer some help!

Steve

Thank you for replying! This is awesome information. Can I ask where you got the second information you sent me?

I'm surprised no one else sent you the link to the tombstones in Mt. Hope. These tombstones records (http://mcnygenealogy.com/cem/mthope-range-3s-z.htm) were copied by Karen Dau.

It appears that there are a William and Wilhelmina Schutt buried near your Frederick & Anna. I thought they might be Fred's parents. So I looked for them in early census records. This link (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/M8JD-NCM) to the 1870 census will show you that William & Wilhelmina "Shutt" have a son Frederick aged 10.

I believe I have seen that record before but I was always told the family name used to be Schutte and that that part of the family is from Germany. This record says Prussia and has a different spelling.

The city of Rochester has put their marriages online for free:

It's not at all unusual for German names to appear in different spellings. And "Prussia" was an overarching Germanic area going all the way from the French border to the Russian one. It seems as if this family was from Mecklenburg-Schwerin.

The marriage record came from the City of Rochester Historic Marriage Index and I have seen someone sent you that link. Where do you live, does your library have Heritage Quest available to you so that you can retrieve the census information for your family at not cost? Generally one just has to obtain a library card. The Mt. Hope Cemetery records showed many Schutt records which may be worth your checking. Persons researching Monroe County have a wonderful circle of persons who are so willing to help.

Census takers spelled names as they heard them. This link (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/VNK7-438) shows the family in the 1875 NY State census. This time the census taker spelled the name Schutt. But Frederick is listed as "Fritz."

Borders in what we call Germany changed many times over time. They were a bunch of small Principalities. Prussia was one of the largest Principalities.
