Henry Schutt, who operates an excellent farm in Orient township, is a native of Germany, born March 16, 1869, and is a son of Fred Schutt. Both his parents were also born in the fatherland and there the mother passed away. The father, however, emigrated to America in 1883, taking up his abode in Cedar county, Iowa, where he resided for ten years. At the end of that time he removed to Crawford county, where he is still living.

Mrs. Schutt is one of a family of seven children and by her marriage has become the mother of five, namely: Ida, Carl, Elsie, Clara and Anna.
