A monument was erected in New Albany, Floyd Co., Indiana for Charles H. Schwanecker, without a death date inscribed. But he died in Covington, Tipton County, Tennessee; and according to his death record, he was interred there, in Munford Cemetery.
An obituary index provides this corroborating information:
obituary, The Covington Leader, Covington, Tipton County, Tennessee:
Schwanecker, Charles H., date of obituary: 18-May-1933, page 12, column 5.

Charles Henry Schwanecker (9 Dec 1849 - 12 May 1933) was a son of Adolphus SCHWANECKER (ca. 1799 - 1865), a lithographer, and his wife Sarah Ann (HOFFMAN) SCHWANECKER of near New Albany, Floyd County, Indiana.
Charles Henry Schwanecker's name is recorded incorrectly on his Tennessee Death Certificate (File No. 48501, Reg. No. 47) as "Charlie Swannaker," instead of SCHWANECKER.
Charles's occupation in Covington, Tennessee was Fisherman (per his death record); but when younger, he was a farmer in rural New Albany, Floyd Co., Indiana.
In about 1884/1885, Charles married Ida May KNIGHT, daughter of Rufus J. KNIGHT and Margaret (STINSON) Knight. Ida May was born 13 Jan 1868, Paducah, McCracken County, Kentucky and may have died after 1940, perhaps in Chicago, Cook Co., Illinois.
Charles Henry and Ida May (KNIGHT) SCHWANECKER divorced in 1889; and Ida Mae KNIGHT later married Louis S. MAUCH, who died 1901, Chicago, Cook County, Illinois.
On 4 Jun 1909, in New Albany, Floyd County, Indiana, the widow Ida Mae (KNIGHT) SCHWANECKER MAUCH then married again her first husband Charles Henry SCHWANECKER. After their second brief marriage, they again divorced 31 Jan 1912, New Albany, Floyd County, Indiana.
They had one son Andrew Adolphus Schwanecker (born 9 Jun 1886, Paducah, McCracken Co., KY; and died 4 Mar 1936, Monterey Co., CA).
