September of 1881 was a very tragic time for the Schulte family.  My 3rd great-grandfather, August Schulte, suddenly disappeared during the night and was found floating a day later in the Detroit River.  As there was no evidence of violence on his person, it was determined that he commit suicide and is buried in the unconsecrated ground section of the cemetery in an unknown location.  He left behind a grieving widow (Mina Raass) and 4 young sons.  His oldest son and his namesake, August Schulte, would also drown 15 years later.  (clicking on the images makes them larger)
