Son of:
Andreas "Andrew" KOWALD of Prussia
and
Friedericke Sidonia "Sidonie" (LANGE) KOWALD of Saxony, Germany.

Husband of:
Hedwig (MERGELE) KOWALD

He was a farmer.

He died from a gunshot wound to the chin.

From Willie Kowald's 2nd great granddaughter:
------------------------------------------------
"Willie was told he had cancer by a doctor. This revelation caused him to take his own life so that he would not be subjected to prolonged suffering. Unfortunately, he did not seek a second opinion. The family speculates that a second opinion could have saved him from committing suicide."
