Peter Schutz was born in 1827 and succeeded his father on the farm, which he still conducts. He is a tanner by trade and from 1873 to 1888 was engaged in the liquor business in Buffalo. His wife died April 13, 1879. Joseph C. Schutz attended St. Anne's Parochial School in Buffalo and was successively engaged in the dry goods store of Chester, Morgan & Aaron and E. Hirslifelt & Co., and in the meat market of Charles Orick.

He is an active Democrat, has served as committeeman three years, and in 1893 and 1897 was his party's candidate for supervisor. He has also been a delegate to various political conventions and is a member of the Odd Fellows, the C. B. L., and the Foresters.
