LOUIS F. SCHNELL (d. 1953) Retired Farmer, Schnell, Is Dead Louis F. Schnell, 73, retired town of Liberty farmer, died Wednesday afternoon at Shady Lane Home, following a brief illness. He had been residing at the home since disposing of the Schnell homestead farm last April. Funeral services will be held at 1:30 p.m. Saturday at the Urbanek and Schlei Funeral Home. The Rev.

His grandfather, Fred Schnell, came to the country from Germany to help set up the homestead farm in Liberty 104 years ago. He was one of five Schnell brothers who came from Germany, landed in Milwaukee, and moved north to Manitowoc County. When Grandpa Fred (Fritz) Schnell died, the farm was taken over by his son, Fred Jr., father of Louis. At the death of the latter, his two sons, Alvin and Louis took over and operated the farm. Alvin Schnell died in 1942, leaving his only survivor, Louis, to take over the farm, which he operated with hired help. A tradition of the Schnell farm in recent years has been an annual party given by Louis Schnell for his friends and neighbors. A highlight of the event was the appearance of the Manitowoc Marine band, which gave a concert on the spacious lawn of the Schnell home. Never Married In April, Schnell disposed of the farm to a neighbor Reuben Wehausen, and moved to Manitowoc. He retained a few of the family heirlooms and one of these, a Swiss music box, acquired in 1890, was turned over to the Rahr Civic Center. This instrument, which cost over $200, is the equivalent to today’s radio and television sets. Schnell never married and with the death of his brother Alvin, 11 years ago he remained the sole survivor of the Schnell family.

CHRIST. SCHOCH LOSE A GOOD CITIZEN Christ Schoch, one of the Pioneer Business Men of the City Succumbs to Last Illness CAME HERE IN PIONEER DAYS One of the City’s Most Prominent Residents Yields to Final Summons of Death— A Good Man Gone Home. Death came to the relief of Christ Schoch at a late hour Tuesday night, releasing him from an illness of two months duration in which time his life had frequently been despaired of. An affection? of the heart from which he had suffered for a long period caused his demise, which, while not unexpected, was sudden and a terrible shock to the family and friends. Shortly after retiring for the night, Mr. Schoch complained of severe illness and before physician could be summoned he had passed beyond the aid of mortal man, death being calm and peaceful and coming to him as he rested in his chair. Few men possessed a ______ acquaintance or were held in higher esteem by the public than was Christ Schoch, who in fifty years of residence here had enjoyed the confidence and esteem of the community and attained a reputation that will make his death a matter of general regret to the public and a source of deep sorrow to those friends who knew him best. Born at Baden Baden, Germany, November 11, 1842, Mr. Schoch was at the time of his death 61 years of age. When a child of ten years his parents emigrated to America, locating in this county where the boy received his early education and on April 18, 1874 was married to Miss Anna Maria Gerl, the wife who, with three children, survive to mourn his loss. For twenty-nine years Mr. Schoch had been engaged in the lumber business, conducting the yard on Main street. He was originally associated with the firm of Pankratz & Co., of which he was the last living member and in 1898, at the death of his former partners, continued the business himself. As a result of industry and honest dealing Mr. Schoch has amassed a comfortable competence. In the death of Christ Schoch Manitowoc loses one of its pioneer business men who had ever been identified with the interests which tended to the development and advantage of the city. In business and social circles he had always been prominent and while of a quiet, retiring disposition, more of a lover of his home and family than of the pleasures afforded by society, he was never neglect- ful of the duty which owed to the public and community. Throughout the county his acquaintance was extensive and the announcement of his death will call forth many expressions of sorrow. Possessing a kindly and genial nature, just and imbued with a high integrity of character, he was ever considered a valued friend and many who have been the beneficiaries of his hand will long cherish his memory. To the bereaved family the sympathy of the community will be extended. Besides the wife, the surviving family consists of three children, two daughters, Emma and Ida, and one son, Frederick. The funeral will be held Friday afternoon from the late home on Eleventh street. Manitowoc Daily Herald, June 3, 1903 P.1 ********* Death Tues. evening of Christ. Schoch after a long siege with a combination of illnesses which had confined him to his bed for months.

For about 30 yrs. he was active in the lumber business and formerly was a member of the firm Pankratz & Co. In 1874 he married Anna Marie Gerl, his now surviving widow. Mr. Schoch was a respected business man and was well thought of by his fellow citizens in every way. In addition to his widow he is survived by 3 children.
