Mr. Sweitzer died in the Somerset County Alms Home and Hospital where he was a patient since Oct. 6, 1898, 41 years 6 months 18 days. He was buried in the County Home Cemetery, Somerset, PA, on April 27, 1940. Source: Death Certificate File # 42738. Birthdate, birthplace, Parent names were all unknown. Age was listed as about 92. This would place birth year at 1848. The birthyear varied with each census.

Since the County Home Cemetery is not represented on Findagrave, I am placing the memorial in the nearby Union Cemetery, Somerset, PA.
