The Fort Wayne News (Fort Wayne, IN ) June 3, 1914
The remains of Charles C.

Fort Wayne News (Fort Wayne, IN) June 1, 1914
PROMINENT CITIZEN OF BLUFFTON DROPS DEAD
(Special to the News.)
BLUFFTON, Ind., June 1-Charles C. Sixby, manager of the Northern Glove company here, dropped dead at 11 o'clock today, while talking to Mr. Lauferty, of Fort Wayne. Mr. Sixby was one of the prominent citizens of Bluffton and his sudden demise came as a shock to the community.

Note: Biographical Memoirs of Wells Co., Indiana by Logansport BF Bowen, 1903, page 112
Biography incorrectly states that Charles C. Sixbey was born on December 22, 1851. His brother, whom he was named after, didn't die until 1852 (not 1849-see vital records and photo of tombstone at Find-A-Grave); therefore correct date of birth for Charles C. Sixbey would be 1852 instead of 1851. Also, Wells County Vital Records show age at death was 61, consistent with his birth date being December 22, 1852.
