Oschmann, Ferdinand

     Ferdinand Oschmann died at 7 o'clock yesterday morning (Dec. 21, 1906) at his home in Grant street of a complication of diseases, aged 61 years.  The deceased was one of the best known men of East Liverpool, having removed with his family from Pittsburg to this city 17 years ago.  From the time of his locating here until a year ago he was the local agent of a foreign brewery.  After retiring from that position he was appointed steward at the club apartments of East Liverpool aerie No. 457, F. O. E.  He was taken suddenly ill a week ago last night while on duty and it was found necessary to assist him to his home.  He had contracted a heavy cold, and having long been a sufferer from asthma all attempts to afford him relief proved of no avail.

     Mr. Oschmann was born in Kiauten, Germany, Octobe 11, 1845.  He came to the United States in 1871, locating in Pittsburg.  He was a member of the local lodge of Elks, the Eagles, the German Benevolent society and the Turners, and wasv held in the highest esteem by all who enjoyed his acquaintance.  He is survived by his wife and the following children:  Fred g., of Wellsville; Edward J., Brooklyn; William O., Pittsburg; Mrs. J. T. Mountford, of East End, and Helen and Carl, at home.

     The funeral will be held Sunday afternoon from the family residence, and will be in charge of the Elks.
