THE WESTERN STAR, 11 February 1893
Obituary of PAUL SCHWARZ

Paul Schwarz died at this home near Evansville, last Saturday morning, February 4th, 1893, from that dreaded contagion - consumption. Mr. Schwarz had been a sufferer from the malady that finally claimed him for a number of years, and though his death was somewhat unexpected at the time, his family and friends were resigned to the fate that must sooner or later overtake him. He leaves a wife and four children to mourn his untimely death, who have the sympathy of the entire community in their sad hour of bereavement. Mr. Schwarz and his family have been residents of the county for a number of years, living upon their farm in Rumsey township during the time, where they have fixed up a comfortable house.

The funeral occurred Monday, when his remains were peacefully laid to rest in the Aetna cemetery to await His call on resurrection morn. (Western Star, January 13, 1894 - Deaths for the year, 1893, gives his age 56 years.)
