Carl Schubert

CARL SCHUBERT. - Numbered among the more intelligent and prosperous agriculturists of Wyandotte county, Kansas, is Carl Schubert, of Bonner Springs, the owner of a valuable and highly improved farm which, with its modernly constructed residence and its substantial farm buildings, gives ample evidence to the passerby of his skill and good taste as a practical farmer and a rural householder. He was born in Germany, March 9, 1845, a son of Fred and Johanna (Abel) Schubert, neither of whom are now living.

Immigrating to the United States in 1869, Carl Schubert came directly to Wyandotte county, Kansas, locating at Bonner Springs, then called Tibleau, and began life in his adopted country as a stone mason. He subsequently turned his attention to agriculture, and fortune seemingly smiled upon his every venture. He wisely invested in land, and now owns a valuable estate of two hundred and thirty acres, on which he is extensively and profitably engaged in stock raising and dairying, industries which have netted him a good annual income. He is a Republican in politics and a faithful member of the Lutheran church, to which his wife and children also belong.

Mr. Schubert married, November 10, 1882, Henrietta Treff, who was born in Germany and came to this country alone, being the only member of her family to leave the Fatherland. She crossed the ocean in 1881, a year previous to her marriage. Fifteen children have blessed the union of Mr. and Mrs. Schubert, twelve of whom are living and assist in the management of the home farm, namely: Herman, who died in infancy; Gertrude; Johanna, who died in 1910; Carl, who died in infancy; Morris; Walter; Frederika; Henrietta; Augusta, who married Walter Henshel, March 24, 1911; Christ; Rheinhardt; Clarence, Oscar; Otto; and Fred.
