Following is a biographical account of Peter Shultz as taken from "History of Seneca County, Ohio," Pulished in 1886:
"PETER SHULTZ. farmer, P. O. Tiffin, was born March 7, 1821, in Belgium, son of Henry and Mary (Mulliton) Shultz, who had a family of five children, three of whom are living in America: Henry, Catherine (Mrs. Peter Lucius) and Peter.
He immigrated to America in 1843, and came direct to Tiffin, Ohio, where he worked at his trade (shoe-making) until 1846, when he enlisted and served through the Mexican War. He then returned to Seneca County, where he remained until 1849, in which year, the gold fever raging in California. Mr. Shultz crossed the plains, and after enduring much suffering reached the land of gold, where he labored until 1859, and then came back to Seneca County and bought the farm on which he now lives.
Mr. Shlultz was married, in 1859, to Jane, doughter of Martin Mann, and by her he has the following Children: Henry, August, John, Martin, Peter, Nicholas, Charles, Jacob, Joseph and Jane, and one deceased in infancy.
Mr. Shultz is a pleasant farmer, well fixed in life, and has a jolly set of boys, all working on the home farm. Mr. Shlultz states that he has made shoes for the Wyandot Indians, who were here when he first came to Ohio."
Peter Shultz was instrumental in Mrs. Peter (Catherine Shultz) Lucius and her children sailing for America. He emigrated about fifteen years before she did, saved his money and then sent for her. When she first arrived in Seneca County, Ohio, she and her children lived with Peter and his wife, Jane Mann, who were newly-weds.
