Married: Tarsilla Fletcher
William J. Schuster was a TB patient at the New York State Hospital at Ray Brook, having arrived in 1908 while he and Tarsilla were engaged to be married. He returned home to Schenectady after a year, and they married. They had welcomed two children by the time he was readmitted as a patient in 1913, and he did not return home until 1916. Tarsilla was admitted as a patient for a short period in 1914 as well. He documented his life at Ray Brook with his Brownie camera, and often sold his photographs as postcards to make some pocket money.
