Shenandoah Sentinel Post dated: 20 October 1911:
"The Remains of Ross Schwartz Laid to Rest"
"The funeral of Ross Schwartz was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. John W. Schwartz yesterday at 1:30 o'clock, conducted by Rev. Price of
Council Bluffs, who was assisted by Rev. Mitchell of the Baptist church in this city. It was largely attended by sympathizing friends of the
family and was one of the saddest and most pathetic funerals held in the city for a long time."
"Mrs. Cogley, Miss Blanche Alden and Messrs. H. I. Foskett and Harry O. Day furnished the vocal music for the sad occasion."
"The funeral was largely attended by the many friends of the family in the city and several strangers from different cities where Mr. Schwartz
has done contract work were present."
"Mr. and Mrs. John W. Schwartz are held in high regard by all Shenandoah people and no man in this city stands for good and pure
society more strenuously than does J. W. Schwartz, father of the deceased."
"Mr. and Mrs. Schwartz have the united sympathy of the people of Shenandoah in their sad hours of bereavement."
"The address made by Elder Price was one that touched the hearts of all who heard it, particularly the parents and brother and sisters of the
deceased, and Mr. Schwartz tells us he wishes that every young man in Shenandoah might have heard it."
