The second was Dolphis II, born July 11, 1853. As I recall it was said, he was tall, about 6 ft in height and perhaps 175 lbs, with dark hair and eyes. Has a refined and pleasing personality, intellectual and polished. Dressed well with good taste. He Possessed a charming voice. It was a delight to listen to his singing at festive gatherings where he was the center of attraction. A tremendous conversationalist and fascinating man.
The Schillers are descendants of nobility, sophistication and well bred. Dolphis II knew how to read and write well and was informed of current events. Perhaps even a little above in knowledge for the average pioneer of the community. He was in his early thirties when he came to join his family in Minnesota. The country was not too well populated and not too many young ladies were available for marriage partners. However, he did meet and fell in love with a tall, blue-eyed blond girl who was attractive, sly and cunning. She led him on with a promise to marry. The date was set for their marriage with everything ready. No one could have been happier for he had won this beautiful girl for his bride. However, his joy was to to last. He was dealt a cruel blow by this deceitful woman. A few day before the date of their wedding, he saw her on the arm of another man passing close to his home in her bridal array. It was believed she wanted to teach the Schillers a lesson in humility as she felt they were above her in knowledge and savoire faire. Dolphis never married and died in a mental hospital in September 1891 at the age of 38. His Illness lasted almost a year. A brain tumor could have been the cause of his sickness. It was also said of his disappointment in marriage might have been the cause of his illness.
