Dies at the Age of 72

Mrs. Margaret Schott, 72 years of age, and for fifty years a resident of Leavenworth, died at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. W.T. Gemple, after an illness of nine days. The death came as a complete shock to her family as Mrs. Schott was in good health until last week.

Mrs. Schott came here with her husband, Peter Schott, in 1868. The husband founded one of the first bakery shops in the state of Kansas, and was well known throughout the state. The couple came here from Salem, Indiana, where they had been in business. There were married in Louisville, KY., where Mrs. Schott was born.

Mrs. Schott is survived by a daughter, Mrs. W.P. Gemple, and three sons, August Schott , Herman Schott and W.C. Schott.
