Schneider, Traugott (1877)

Last Friday a report was brought to this village (Neillsville, Clark County) that the lifeless body of Traugott Schneider, (Better known in the community as John Schneider) had been discovered that morning in his dwelling, about five mile northwest of this place. A coroner's jury was immediately summoned by R. F. Kountz, a Justice of the Peace in the town of Pine Valley, and an inquest held, resulting in a verdict of death from heart disease. It was known to the neighbors of the deceased that he had been sick for some time past, and several days previous to the finding of the body he was heard to call for water by persons passing that way, and by whom he was supplied with that for which he asked, but received no further attention. The jury was assisted in finding the verdict given above, through a partial examination of the body by Dr. Crandall, who had been treating him for that difficulty. The appearance of the body indicated that he had been dead about thirty-six hours at the time his death was ascertained. His remains were consigned to their last resting place on Saturday, by his neighbors, the deceased having no relatives in this country. He left some property, for which, we understand, one of his neighbors is a claimant.
