A search for Archie’s grave in the Blue Mountains City Council website failed to turn it up, so a few phone calls finally revealed that his name had been misspellt as “Schultz”.
The grave was then located and was given a clean up and photos taken. See below.
We also obtained a copy of his death certificate. See below.
Full name: Archibald Constantin Schulze
Cause of death is listed as “hepatic enlargement with mesenteric glandular disease” at 2 5/6 years of age, ( 2 years and 10 months ) on 6th April 1889.
Council records state he was buried the same day.
Interestingly Harry Peckman was the undertaker. Harry was better known for his tour guiding and bush poetry.
