LeRoy A. Schwemm, formerly of Algonquin and well known here, was killed Saturday in a tractor accident on the Public Service Company model farm near Mundelein. A coroner's jury returned a verdict of accidental death althought the manner inwhich Schwemm's body got between the tractor and the plow will likely never be known.

Plowing for more than an hour, Schwemm had reached one corner of the field. Whether he was thrown from his seat or was making an adjustment is not known.

Schwemm was born November 14, 1909 in Algonquin, and was well and favorably known. He was married June 20, 1936 to the former Mrion Ebel who with a 6-month daughter, Jean, survives. Other surviving relatives are: Mr. and Mrs. Wm Schwemm of Crystal Lake; seven brothers - Emil, Edwin, Alvin, Raymond, Gordon, Leslie and Howard and one sister, Esther.

Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon at the Schwemm home in Mundelein, and at the Lutheran Church in Libertyville. Burial was at Algonquin.
