Charles
Schultz


 

CHARLES SCHULTZ was born in Pennsylvania of German- immigrant parents around 1865. He appears to have been the son of Charles and Eva Schultz, and the youngest of four children. The family was living at 26 South 4th Street in Camden when the 1880 Census was enumerated. Charles Schultz was then working as an apprentice printer. He was still at the South 4th Street address and working as a printer when the 1882 City Directory was compiled. Charles Schultz stayed at that address through at least 1885. The 1887 City Directory shows him residing at 227 Taylor Avenue. By 1890 he had moved to 324 Federal Street. He married his wife Jennie around 1892. Their first son, Charles G. Schultz, came the following year. The 1894-1895 Directory shows Charles Schultz at 1162 Maple Street. The Schultz family was living at 1141 Maple Street when the 1896 and 1899 and 1896 City Directories were compiled. A second son, William E. Schultz, was born in Camden on December 12, 1902. 

By the time the Census was taken in 1900 the family had moved to 214 North 11th Street. Interestingly enough the next door neighbor at 210 North 11th Street was Elmer E. Burkett. Both Schultz and Burkett would go on to long careers as members of the Camden Fire Department. Charles Schultz would remain at 214 North 11th Street through at least 1943.

On November 27, 1907 Charles Schultz was appointed to the Camden Fire Department. He worked at Engine Company 5 and later with one of the companies north of the Copper River in East Camden and Cramer Hill. Charles Schultz was still working for the Fire Department as late as 1931, but retired soon afterwards. He was an active member of the Tenth Ward Republican Organization Club, and was still involved with this group as late as 1936. Jennie Schultz passed away in July of 1936. Charles Schultz was still living at 214 North 11th Street when the 1943 City Directory was compiled. He is not listed in the 1947 edition, and most likely had passed away. 

Son William E. Schultz was appointed to the Camden Police Department in 1926, and  graduated from the New Jersey State Police Academy on March 14, 1929. He soon was noticed for his expertise with firearms and as an expert marksman. William Schultz retired as a Lieutenant from the Camden Police Department in 1965.
