Back to The Family Tree of Jacob Grundtisch


Fred, the fourteen-months-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Earl Newell died at their home in Mansfield [OH] Saturday [23 OCT 1909] evening, at 5 o'clock. The child had been ill with typhoid pneumonia for a couple of weeks and was apparently recovering. Its death was very sudden.

The remains were brought to this city [Upper Sandusky, OH] on Pennsylvania train, No. 9, at 1:35 o'clock Monday [25 OCT 1909] afternoon. They were taken at once in the Stoneburner funeral car to Trinity Reformed church, where the funeral services were conducted by Rev. J.H. Beck, the pastor. Music was furnished by the church choir. The floral offerings were most beautiful, the little white casket being fairly hidden under them. Burial was made in Old Mission cemetery. The pallbearers were an uncle, Harold Newell, and three cousins, Robert Roby (sic), Harvey Grundtisch and Earl Schindler.

The remains were accompanied to this city by Mr. and Mrs. Earl Newell and Mr. and Mrs. William Shively, daughters, Clara and Helen, and son, Oliver, all of Mansfield.
