He was born Johann Franz Joseph Schulte in 1805 to Franz Schulte & Elisabeth Wilmes and was the oldest of 7 children. He married Elisabeth Förth in 1830 and is the father of 9 children, of whom only 5 survived. His sister, Elisabeth Lenneman, immigrated to the United States with her family in 1846, and they resided in Westphalia, Clinton, Michigan. Franz followed behind with his family a year later in 1847, and they resided in Detroit, Michigan. He died in 1869 of consumption which is what is known today as tuberculosis. He is buried in Mt. Elliott Cemetery in the “old section.” His grave his a flat stone that has sunk about 3 inches. The rain has faded away what the inscription on the stones says. I took the photograph almost 10 years ago, and at that time knew little about rubbings and water, etc. I hope to get back soon and photograph the stone again so there is a record before it completely disappears.

Albert Raass is buried in Mt. Elliott Cemetery in Detroit, Michigan. Albert died of consumption (tuberculosis) in 1873 at the young age of 17 years old. He is the youngest child and the only child of Joseph & Anna Raass to have been born in America (the rest of the family was born in Austria.) His family was devastated at his death, and each of his siblings named their next male child “Albert” in memory of him.
The first Albert to be born 8 months later was Albert Schulte to Wilhelmina Raass and August Schulte. The next Albert to be born in December of 1874 was Albert Rischert to Magdelana Raass & Charles Rischert. And the last Albert to be born was to Elisabeth Degenfelder & Henry Raass in 1875. His memorial is posted at Find-A-Grave.
