Schultz in Prussia, PA, VA and WI

Seeking relatives of my ggrandfather Daniel SCHULTZ (could be spelled SHUTZ) and his wife Julianne (Juliane) WEIGELL who immigrated from Germany between 1892-1894 to PA and then to Meherrin, Va. They had a relative Henry who operated a corn mill either in Lunenburg or Prince Edward County, twin daughters Eva and Emma, and several other children, possibly Andrew and Adolph. There were 10 births altogetherl. According to the 1910 census for Prince Edward County, VA, 6 of the children were still alive. Emma's husband Hugo KIPPER, stated in his petion for naturalization that the twins were born in Jacotschin/Jagotschen, Prussia, present-day Poland.

Daniel owned a farm in the Prince Edward County and was still living on it according to the 1910 census. He may have been naturalized in PA. According to his death notice and obituary in 1920, he died in Williamsburg, VA and was buried in Prince Edward CO. He still had a brother, A. G. Schultz, living in VA and one named Manuel, living in Tylersport, PA.My grandmother told me that when he immigrated some of his family came with him to PA and then to VA. Others went to Wisconsin.

Daniel lived on the farm next to Andrew and Amelia Schultz. I believe they are related. Andrew and his wife were born in Germany. Known children: William, Annie Matilda, Otto, Henry, Agusta, Louisa. All of these children were born in VA except William who was born in WVA.
