William D. Schwemm, 86, a resident and farm operator in the Crystal Lake vicinity for 32 years he died March 4, at his home on a farm northeast of Crystal Lake near Rte 176 and Barrefille Road. He was born at Barrington December 27, 1866. After his marriage December 1893 to Sophie Dehmlow at Algonquin, they farmed in that vicinity and in Cary before moving to Crystal Lake.

In addition to his widow, he is survived by seven sons and a daughter; Emil of Cary and Edwin, Alvin, Raymond, Gordon and Howard, all of Crystal Lake, Miss Esther Schwemm and Leslie Schwemm, residing on the farm; two sisters, Mrs. Minnie Schnetlage of Barrington and Mrs. Ida Lyons of Chicago and Five grandchildren. A daughter, Loida Schwemm and a son, LeRoy, and four brothers preceded him in death.

Mr. Schwemm was taken ill three months ago, and although apparently greatly improved, in health three weeks ago suffered a fatal relapse.

Mr. Schwemm was known as a genuinely 'good neighbor' always ready to extend a helping hand. As a farmer, he had the reputation of being unusually fond of his horses many of which he raised himself and all of which he kept for long years. One of his favorite sayings was, "No one is kinder to man than ahorse and no one does more work for man than a horse".
