Editor’s notes:

Immediately after marriage, John, Martha and their young son Harvey moved to Jackson, Minnesota and took up farming there. By 1912, they moved back to the Beecher area, Hanover, Lake County, Indiana and bought yet another farm.

In 1925, his beloved wife Martha died following an operation at St. James Hospital. The following year, 1926, his older brother George Heinrich Guritz, husband of Ella D. (nee Lindemann) and the father of six children, ages 1 year to 14 years old, died. George had been in poor health for four years. He was taken suddenly ill and after two short days he was called to answer the final summons.

By 1930,  John was living on his farm in Lake County, IN with his only son Harvey and  his brother George’s widow, Ella, and her six children: Arthur, Melvin, Anna, Earl, Della and George.

By 1940, John, Harvey, Ella and the six children had moved to Lawrence, Van Buren, Michigan. In the 1940 census, John & Ella are listed as husband and wife.
