Notes Wesley Luehring, born February 28, 1902, is the son of Henry Luehring and Clara (nee Schuette) of Elk Grove. After the marriage of Henry and Clara, they moved to Itasca. As an adult, Wesley operated a real estate business at the northwest corner of Orchard and Walnut Street in Itasca, Illinois. The business existed by the early 1960s. After the death of Henry William Schuette in 1959, the farmhouse that now serves as our museum, was rented by Wesley during the 1960s and eventually sold to the Maioriello family. Wesley died on October 14, 1986.
