Chatham Notes
Death of an Old Citizen

Chatham, March 3. - Another death, as sudden as that of Barton Hewitt's, previously reported, has again taken place. Gottlieb Schmidt, an old resident of Ball township, died about 10 o'clock on Saturday morning, after a very few day's illness, from pneumonia. A large number of neighbors and friends had not even heard of his sickness, until told of his death, so unexpectedly and so sudden did the attack terminate fatally.
One of the most familiar and welcome visitors to our village people was our deceased German friend. He was truly one of God's noblest works, "an honest man." He never drew a dishonest breath, nor slept the sleep of anything else than the righteous, clear conscienced man. He was a worthy member of the German Lutheran Church, and took great pride in being active in its service. He was a kind father and husband, and a true neighbor - true in every sense of the word. We shall miss him sorely, and shall not soon look upon his like again - for they are scarce, fearfully so in this fast day and age. The heartfelt sympathies of all our citizens are with the bereaved ones in this, their great trouble. He died in his 65th year, and will be buried to-day, by the Lutheran church members in our graveyard.
