As a young man he served as a missionary to Surinam, but returned to Bethlehem PA in 1806 and later came to North Carolina.

Third Generation

Children of August Heinrich Schultz

According to the card file in the Moravian Archives, August Heinrich Schultz was the father of six children.

Lucinda Bagge's will (dated May 1866) names nephew Charles Bagge Shultz and nieces Mary Eliza, wife of D.A.N. Leinback, and Susan C., wife of Herman Brickenstein. We suspect that Mary Eliza and Susan C. are also Shultz children. Who were the others?
