Henry Chris Schlottman was born in Greengarden township in Illinois. Henry, his two younger brothers, and a half brother all married sisters from the Buckholtz family, of which Henry's wife Sophie was the eldest. The 1880 Census for Greensgarden shows Henry and Sophie as married with no children and lists his occupation as 'farmer'. Henry and Sophie had four children in Greensgarden before moving to Ellsworth, Minnesota where Henry ran a general store. Henry and Sophie had five more children.

Henry's first five children were all girls. The Schlottman girls, as they were called around town, were proud of their relationship and were very close to each other.

Henry and Sophie moved to Brogan, Oregon sometime shortly before 1910 and then moved again in 1919, this time to Payette, Idaho to be closer to their children Alfred and Laura.

Henry died at home on May 23rd 1941 after a short illness. Funeral services were held 2-days later at St. John Evangelical church in Payette, the Rev. Albert Beutenmueller officiating, and Henry was buried at Rosedale Memorial Park.
