(Note: I found the following biography of Louis Schaaf from a book about the history of Clay County, Nebraska --- Louis H. Schaaf - Nothing so markedly shows the strength and prosperity of a community as the number of large concerns engaged in handling the staple necessities of life, and prominent among these may be mentioned the grocery establishment belonging to Mr. Schaaf. He was born in Jerseyville, Ill., July 12, 1857, and is a son of Henry and Sabra (Bingham) Schaaf, who were born in Germany and New York State in 1832 and 1836, respectively. The Schaafs were early residents of Illinois, and the grandfather was one of the first millers and built the first mill in Jersey County. Henry Schaaf died in St. Mary’s, Mo., in 1858, but his wife is still living, and is a resident of Edgar, Neb. Louis H. Schaaf was the younger of two children and was reared in Illinois, there receiving his educational advantages, which were only such as the common schools afforded. In 1878 he came to Clay County, Neb., and after being engaged in farming near Edgar for two years he began clerking, this occupation receiving his attention for three years. He then opened a grocery establishment at Edgar, continuing alone for about a year and a half, and then became associated in the same business with George H. Van Antwerp, their partnership lasting until April, 1889, when Mr. Schaaf sold out to William Westering, and on June 15, 1889, he opened his present establishment at Sutton. Although he has been established here a'very short time he has built up a trade and founded a reputation which ranks him in every way but in age with the oldest houses of the county. He has made his own way in the world, and is now a leading business man and a highly esteemed resident of the county. He was married on April 1, 1872 to Miss Louisa Keller, who was born near Chicago, Ill., in 1863. They have two children: Leslie and an infant unnamed. Mr. Schaaf is an uncompromising Republican, and socially is a member of the A. O. U. W., a charter member of Edgar Lodge No. 50. He and wife are members of the Baptist Church.)
