      FUSS - John and Amelia

      John Fuss (d. 1930), son of Heinrich and Anna (Ludolph) Fuss Sr., married Amelia Wurm (d. 1955), daughter of Henry and Katherine (Zeller) Wurm Jr., in 1891. They first lived in Zurich, where John was an active member of the Jubilee Band, then moved to Exeter in 1898, where John was a foreman in the flax mill. They returned to Zurich in 1910, when they purchased the home of Solomon Kuepfer. They were members of St. Peter's Lutheran Church. John and "Em", as she was known, had one daughter, Verda, who married Joe Swartz and went to live in Michigan. Amelia remained in her home, where she enjoyed crocheting, quilting and other crafts. John and Amelia rest in St. Peter's Lutheran Cemetery.
