      Authwin William Stoltz was born 23 August 1894 in Lick Prairie Precinct, Wabash County, Illinois, was the son of William George and Nellie R. (Williams) Stoltz. See Number 6411. Authwin Stoltz was born and raised on his father's farm. He attended the Lick Prairie rural school. Since he was not interested in farming, he prepared himself to teach school. He attended the Friendsville Seminary at Friendsville, Illinois, or the Southern Collegiate Institute at Albion, Illinois, for a term of six or eight weeks. Authwin taught the Monarch rural school for three years and the O.K. rural school for two years. The O.K. School was southeast of Allendale, Illinois. Authwin then attended college at Valparaiso, Indiana.
      Authwin Stoltz married Sarah Marie Armstrong 20 March 1917, Wabash County, Illinois. Sarah Armstrong was born 8 November 1895 southeast of Allendale, Illinois. Sarah Armstrong was the daughter of Howard Armstrong, born 11 August 1858 and Anna Zuber, born 27 February 1862. Howard and Anna Armstrong had four daughters: (1) Hortense (Mrs. John A. Holsen), (2) Christina (Mrs. Arthur Wood), (3) Bonnie (Mrs. R. H. Clark), and (4) *Sarah (Stoltz). Sarah was always called 'Marie'. Marie's father, Howard Armstrong, died 11 November 1926 and her mother, Anna Zuber, died in February 1949. Both are buried at Highland Memorial Cemetery, Mt. Carmel, Illinois. Marie's paternal grandfather was Wickliff J. Armstrong, born in November 1833, and her grandmother was Sarah A. Cesel, born in 1837. Wickliff Armstrong died 20 May 1910 and Sarah died 19 October 1910; burial at the Armstrong Cemetery near Allendale, Wabash County, Illinois.
      Marie's father's ancestors emigrated to America from Ireland before the Revolutionary War. They came first to North Carolina, then to Kentucky, then to Tennessee, and then to Wabash County, Illinois, arriving in 1815 and bought land southeast of Allendale, Illinois. The title to this land was given to a Mr. Pullon by President Monroe. Marie's maternal grandfather, Jacob Zuber, emigrated from Germany when less than age eighteen to escape the military draft, taking passage as a stowaway.
      Shortly after their marriage, Authwin and Marie moved to Louisville, Kentucky, where he taught in a business college. In 1918 he took the U. S. Civil Service examination for a government clerk and was given the appointment as clerk of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Interior Department, Washington, D.C. While working in Washington, Authwin attended night school at George Washington University. He graduated with a degree in law, returned to Mt. Carmel, Illinois in 1923 and opened his own law practice. Authwin and Marie resided in Mt. Carmel. They were members of the First Christian Church.
