Mollie was born Oct. 30, 1895 to Johann Georg and Margaret (Brinkman) Laubhan in Shcherbakovka, Russia. She died Tuesday, February 26 and burial was Friday in Shattuck. She immigrated at age 15 with her cousin Henry, stopping first in Russell, KS where he brother John lived. As they came through Ellis Island, they were detained for 2 weeks. They were short on money & they relied on people to help them out and give them food. Someone gave her an orange. She said it was the best thing she had ever eaten. She said they had eaten so much cabbage on the ship, that she was sick of it. It appears on the manifest that they owed for 40 breakfasts, dinners and suppers. They were only enroute 12 or 13 days so 40 meals would be most of the meals that they ate on the entire trip. Or perhaps they started with SOME money and were able to pay for a few meals or maybe skipped some meals here and there. It looks like there is a date of 12/3 noted on their records, so they were still held on that date. Someone obviously had to send some money to get them out of hock, but I don't know who. Since brother Alexander was listed, he was most likely the one that the ship company contacted for payment.
Mrs. Schultz is survived by her husband, Carl of the home; two daughters: Esther Krehbiel and Virginia Steinle; three sons: Willie, Clarence, and Roy; many grandchildren. She is also survived by one brother Fred Laubhan of Shattuck. She was preceded by 2 young children, Wilbur and Pearl; sister Katie Wassenmiller; brothers Alexander, John and Georg plus others who died as children in Russia.
She is buried in the Adventist Cemetery aka Seventh Day Adventist Cemetery or Weiss Cemetery (Sec 15 Twp 20 R25 or 5 miles south and 1 east of Shattuck, OK.
