It appears that he may have had a SISTER in Springfield:
Karl Heinrich Schuette was born to Bernhard and Henriette (Lange)
|08/10/1862||Schuette, Karl Heinrich||1862||Bernhard||Henriette||Lange||Theo. Huschmann||Karl Lange and Heinrich Lange||Bernhard was a bricklayer.||Trinity Lutheran Church Baptisms 1838 to 1879|
Carl Ludwig Schuette was born to the same couple.
|1864||02/14/1864||Schuette, Carl Ludwig||12/07/1863||1863||Leonhard||Henriette||Lange||William Bartling||Carl Lange and Louise Lange|
I searched for Heinrich Lange as a father and he isn't listed. That may mean a couple of things, he didn't have children, or he wasn't a member of this church, or he didn't live in Springfield.
Henriette and Bernard went on to have other children but don't see their baptismal records. In the 1895 city directory, she is listed as the Widow of Bernard living at 323 W Cook along with Miss Annie Schuette (teacher) and Miss Elizabeth Schuette (Carpet weaver). Her son, Henry C. (I assume this is Karl Heinrich) Schuette was a driver for John Bessmer Co but lived at 106 W. Cook.
