THE WESTERN STAR, 11 October 1901
Obituary of MICHAEL SCHAUB
DIED
Schaub - At his home in Rumsey tp., Comanche co., Kansas, on Sunday, October 6, 1901, Michael Schaub, aged 61 years, 4 months and 25 days.

The deceased was born in Ferdenheim, Alsace, France, on May 11, 1840. He emigrated to the United States in 1869, locating at Steator, Illinois, where he lived until 1888 when he moved with his family to Comanche co.,
where he had since continued to live. Mr. Schuab had been in poor health for a year or more and for several months prior to his death he was troubled with Bright's disease and complications. He bore his suffering with remarkable fortitude, and at no time did he express any fear of death.

Uncle Mike Schaub was known to almost every person in Comanche co., and to many in Barber co. He was prominently identified with the live stock interests of this part of Kansas. He was respected far and wide for his
absolute honesty and for his kind and benevolent disposition. All spoke of him as "a good neighbor and good citizen." The remains were laid away in the Coldwater cemetery on Monday afternoon in the presence of a large number of the citizens of the county. Funeral exercises were conducted at the cemetery by Rev. W. L. Roberts, of the Presbyterian church. The
bereaved relatives have the sincere sympathy of all.
