He was a gentle natured and generous man (as was his elder brother Wilhelm) and one of Mannum's favourite River Captains. Owing to his foresight Mannum now possesses the finest recreation and children's playground on the River Murray. He was a life member and Vice President of the Mannum Rowing Club and took a keen interest in the formation of the Mannum Agricultural Society. He was a member of the local Rifle Club and also the founder of the Mannum Water Trust.

In 1882 Friedrich took over the licence of the Bogan Hotel from his brother Gottlieb Wilhelm, which he held until 1884 when it was taken over by I (or J.) McMillan.

The last subdivision of land in Mannum for this period was made by F.E. Schuetze and named “Mannumville” it comprised 30 allotments and fronted on King George Street. He also held a number of Land Titles.

A second daughter, Cora Mathilda Schuetze, was born to Friedrich and Minnie on 12 July 1882 - she married Percival Walter Randell 12 June 1907. Youngest daughter of Friedrich and Minnie was Ella Girtrude born 20 May 1884 in Mannum. She married Oscar Lionel Isaachsen 28 December 1910 in the St John the Baptist Church, Murray Bridge, SA.

The last child born to Friedrich and Minnie was a son - Albert Edward (11 September 1885). He served in the AIF in WWI enlisting in Port Pirie, South Australia on 27/4/1916 aged 30. He embarked on “Africa” on 7/11/1916 and disembarked Plymouth, England 9/1/1917.
