|William August Schultz|
Mr. William August Schultz, Orchardist, Wattle Grove, Port Cygnet, was born in Longaminda, Prussia, in 1845, and came to Tasmania with his father, the late Mr. Godfred Schultz, ten years later.
His parents settled at Wattle Grove, where they obtained 125 acres of horticultural land. On the death of his father in 1894, at the age of eighty-four years, Mr. William Schultz took charge of the property. At the present time he has some 13 acres laid down with the most saleable varieties of apples, pears, and small fruits, whilst a portion of the estate is used for grazing purposes.
He was for some years a member of the Port Cygnet Fruit Board, and in 1899 was elected to the Road Trust. Mr. Schultz was married in 1877 to Miss Rosetta Mazengarb, a daughter of Mr. Charles Mazengarb, of Hobart, and has a family of eight children.
