Scheller, Oswald (16 SEP 1866 - 23 JUL 1918)
Died, at the hospital in Chippewa Falls, Wis., Tuesday, July 23, 1918, of consumption, Oswald Scheller, aged 51 years, 10 months and 7 days. The most of his life had been spent in this locality (Colby, Wis.), and the family has been known from the earliest settler down to the present time, they having moved into the town of Hull, Marathon Co. shortly after the close of the Civil War. His father served in the war and for this service, as was the case with many others, they were given this land. Oswald contracted consumption about three years ago and grew steadily worse. They thought by removing him to the hospital he might get some relief but he died soon after reaching there. He was buried in Colby Cemetery.
