DIED IN SERVICE
Plymouth County Volunteer Succumbs to Pneumonia
Charles Schnepf, a son of Mr. and Mrs. Magnus Schnepf, of
Remsen, died in a hospital at Corpus Christi, Texas, on Thursday
night, January 23, of pneumonia. His parents were notified of his
death on Friday and the news came as a severe shock as they had
not known that he was even ill. The young man was in the service
having enlisted in August, 1917.
Charles Schnepf was born on a farm near Remsen on May 22, 1896,
and lived in that vicinity all his life until he went into the
service. His death is mourned by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Magnus
Schnepf, and his brothers and sisters, who are Mrs. Elizabeth
Kunkel, of Adrian, Minn.; Marie and Carrie at home; William,
Winifred and Joseph, living on farms in Fredonia township; and
George, who is with the Army in France.
Charles Schnepf was a fine young man with many friends who regret
his early death.
The remains were shipped from Corpus Christie to Remsen and the
funeral was held at St. Mary's church in that city on Thursday.
The young soldier was accorded military honors.
