WILLIAM FISCHER
June 5, 1908

On Tuesday morning, June 2, at the home of his brother, John, on Spruce street, east of SS. Peter and Paul's church, occurred the death of William Fischer after an illness of a number of months with pulmonary trouble.
Less than a year ago his health commenced to fail and , while husking corn last winter, he was compelled to leave his work and go to San Antonio, Texas, in the hope that the climatic change would prove beneficial to his physical condidtion. The hoped-for improvement never came, and he returned to the home of his brother here on May 22, being very weak, where he lingered until relieved by death.
William Fischer was born near Cologne, Germany, March 9, 1865. He came to America in June, 1881, and came directly to Chatsworth, where he had made his home since that time. For a time he worked as a farm hand and for several years past had farmed for himself. He was unmarried and leaves no near relatives except his one brother, John, of this city.
The funeral services were held at SS. Peter and Paul's church on Thursday morning, Rev. W.J. Burke officiating, and the remains were interred at St. Patrick's cemetery. The Knights of Columbus council attended the funeral in a body, deceased being a member of that order.
