Ernst Schwalbe Chilton Times January 15, 1898

On Saturday evening last, Ernst Schwalbe, died at his home in this city, aged 27 years, 3 months and 12 days. Ernest was born in the town of Eaton, Manitowoc County, on September 27, 1870, and was a son of Charles and Amelia Schwalbe. He passed his boyhood days in the vicinity of his home and when about 18 years of age, took charge of and operated a cheese factory. He continued this work for five years. In 1893 he went to the state of Washington, where he remained for five months. In June, 1894 he was married to Miss Bertha Wagner and the same month purchased with William Stepanay the Central House of this city. In the fall of 1894 his brother William purchased Mr. Stephany's interest and the hotel was conducted under the name Schwalbe Bros. On January 1, 1896, his wife died of that dread disease consumption; and some six months later Mr. Schwalbe's health began to fail and in November, 1896 he went to California with the hope of being benefitted. He remained there five months. Since his return he gradually grew weaker and was at last called to that undiscovered country beyond the grave.
His funeral took place on Tuesday from the Congregational church, Rev. H. S. Evert conducting the services, and was largely attended by friends from this and Manitowoc County. In the death of Mr. Schwalbe our city has lost an upright, honest young man, who was shred in business and popular with those whom he met. He leaves a father, mother, two brothers and five sisters, besides other relatives to mourn his death.
