Death of George Grundtisch

Geo. W., only son of Adam Grundtisch, died of consumption, at the home of John Burckhardt (sic), on North Seventh st., [Upper Sandusky, OH] Thursday [29 NOV 1888] evening last, at the age of 17 years 9 months and 23 days. Deceased was a very promising boy. He was bright, one of the best scholars that attended our Union School and all who knew him deeply deplore his premature death. But there is no telling when death awaits any one. All men are heirs to troubles, but few, to fortunes. To us it is always a sad, touching spectacle to see those in the noon of life suddenly cut off. The bereaved father has the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community in this his hour of darkness and unspeakable sorrow.

The funeral occurred at 1:30 Sunday [02 DEC 1888] afternoon. Services were conducted at the Trinity Reformed church by Rev. H.S. Gekeler, assisted by Rev. C.M. Reinhold, in the presence of a very large concourse of sympathizing friends. After the service the remains were intered in the Oak Hill cemetery. Peace to his ashes.

--Wyandot County Republican, Upper Sandusky, OH, Thursday, 06 DEC 1888
