Per Moyer - in 1880 George was a Lutheran Minister - 8 miles SE of Buffalo Lake, MN, McLeod or Sibley County
per Moyer - 1919 living in Minneapolis, MN
Per Britzius File II - p. 16 - "(George) was a Lutheran minister in rural Minnesota, gave his sermons in German. Earned $600 a year, sent $100 to his 'boys' homesteading in Montana. George may have originally obtained the land in Montana (near Harlowton) for his sons to settle. . . Don Russell grandson of George, son of Lydia) wrote me in 1978 about his grandparents as follows: . . .'And my grandfather had strong opinions about telling the truth--as well as card playing, booze, Catholics and Jews; all bad. He was a stong believer in honesty, hard work, his church, fairness as he saw it. And he was a pretty good natural physician (meaning he believed in the curative power of natural herbs). In some of his parishes he was the only 'doctor' in the area. He was also kind and generous, so it was only natural (one obituary said) that friends came to his funeral from as far away as 100 miles. His medical assisstance was usually rewarded with farm produce; from laying hens to a barrel of fall apples - sometimes spring plowing help. His chief vanity was the ownership of the best looking pair of horses in his parish - he knew how to drive them, too. You could say he loved good horses the way I like my red Cadillac.'"
1900 Census - Dakota County, MN, Hampton twsp - George and Maggie "Britzus" shown with 4 younger children.
