  • Notes 
    • Heinrich Schwenn

      One of the most industrious and respected citizens of the city of Berlin died on Tuesday afternoon at 5: 00 o'clock, after a 3-month illness of a lung, liver and kidney ailment, at the age of 64 years, 8 months and 4 days. He was born October 3, 1833 in Sinsheim, Grand Duchy of Baden, came to Canada in 1852 and has resided ever since in Berlin. He operated the brick-making company for many years with his father, successfully, and then, gave it up about 14 years ago. For many years, he was a member of city council and of the school board, was highly respected by his fellow citizens and had a great many friends. On Sept. 27, 1857 he married Elizabeth Schneider; from this marriage one son was born, who died 16 years ago. His burial takes place today, Thursday, at 2: 00 pm.
