Louis C. Schwartz was born on 23 March 1879 in Bernheimer, Warren County, Missouri. He died on 28 April 1935.
The newspaper carried this obituary
Louis C. Schwartz was born in the vicinity of Bernheimer, March 23, 1879 and died at the Missouri Baptist Hospital, St. Louis, April 28, 1935 having reached the age of 56 years, 1 month and 5 days.
His entire life was spent in the home community. He was reared in a Christian home. At the age of 14 on April 3, 1893 he completed his course in religious instruction and Rev. J.M. Rhde was received him into membership of the Smith Creek Methodist Church.
On February 27, 1908 he was united in marriage with Emma Wehmeyer of the same community. They went into housekeeping on the farm which has been their home ever since. Into this home five children were born.
Mr. Schwartz was thrifty, industrious farmer. In the home he was a good husband and father. In the neighborhood he was known for his willingness and dependability. In the church he was ever faithful and loyal. With devoutness he served his Lord and Savior. When the earthly existence of his life drew to a close he met the end with peace and assurance.
Until a year or so ago he continually enjoyed the best of health. No one would have suspected that the fateful disease was then at hand. He complained of his health and began going to a physician. But his condition gradually grew worse. A few weeks ago he was confined to his bed. The pain and suffering grew intense. Nearly two weeks ago it was found necessary to rush him to a hospital, where an operation was performed. But on Sunday night at 12 o'clock his Master came to release him from his suffering and take him to his heavenly home.
He leaves to mourn his departure his wife: five children, Clarence, Gilbert, Victor, Helen and Virginia; his aged mother, who now lives at New Franklin; three brothers, Fritz of New Franklin; John of Menlo, Iowa, and Paul of Boone, Iowa; three sisters, Mrs. Gus Howelmann of Jefferson City, Mrs. Elda Howelmann of New Franklin and Mrs. Clara Brown of Stuart, Iowa, besides many other relatives and friends.
The funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon at the Smith Creek Methodist Church, the pastor having charge of the services. "Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted", was the text of the sermon. Accompanied by Mrs. Wesley Dothage, a quartet, consisting of Edna and Orlando Brakemeyer, Mrs. Opal Morhaus and Eldon Haeuser, sang three appropriate songs. "Face to Face," "It is Well," and "Asleep in Jesus". Interment was made in the church cemetery. Louis C. Schwartz and Emma Bertha Wehmeyer (Schwartz) were married on 27 Feb 1908 in Smith Methodist Church, Warren County, Missouri.

In Memoriam
We condense as much as our space will permit from an obituary on the death of:
Rev. Daniel Tredwell Sherman, which occurred at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Mary Brown, in Dalton Georgia, January 21, 1901, and written by Prof. Carr Waller Pritchett of Morrison Observatory of Glasgow, Mo.
“To many of his friends and brethren in Missouri, this announcement will bring sorrow and revive many tender recollections of bygone years. He was the third son of Daniel and Sylvia Sherman, and was born in Oneida county, new York, march 21, 1816. When about five years of age, his fathers family moved from their New York home to St. Charles, Mo. The trip was made by wagon to Sackett’s harbor and from there to St. Louis by flat boat, and occupied more that two months. From St. Charles they moved in 1822 to that part of Montgomery county now known as Warren County and in May 1826 fixed their permanent residence at Hickory Grove, on the old Boon’s Lick Road, one mile west of the fifth principal median of U.S. surveys. Here the boyhood of our brother as passed, and he always spoke of this as the old family home.
His opportunities  for education were very meager. The public and private schools of the vicinity were few and elementary, but he so improved his opportunities that in early manhood he had required a fair English education which developed in precision and extent in all his after life.
In February 1835, brother Sherman was licensed as an Exhorter, and on August 29 1836, was licensed as a local preacher by the Quarterly Conference of  St. Charles circuit, at the Old Bethlehem Campground, and at this same place in September 1837, was recommended for admission on trial, in the Missouri Annual Conference. The Conference sat that  year 1837-8, as assistant on the Bowling Green circuit. I here summarize as briefly as possible his official relations to the church for the last 65 years of his life. Local preacher and exhorter, 19 years; traveling preacher in Missouri Conference 20 years, with the following charges: Bowling Green, Richmond, Columbia, 1837-1840, local 1840-1845, Danville Ct. 2 years, Bowling Green, St. Charles Ct. 2 years, Warrenton 2 years, Savannah 2 years, Hannibal station 1845-1866 local. Illinois Conference, M.E. Church south, 5 years; Canton Station and Springfield District, Peoria District, 2 years; Marietta and Midway supernumerary 2 years; Missouri conference, Kahoka, Old Alexandria, Ashley, Frankford, Santa Fe, Vandalia, superannuated 1881-1900.
Brother Sherman was twice married. His first wife was Mrs. Sylia J. Bewley, widow of Rev. Nelson  R. Bewley of Missouri Conference. They were married at the home of the late venerated David K. Pitnam, in St. Charles County, Jan 11, 1838. Two children of this marriage survive, Mrs. Eliza Worthington, Winlock, Washington and J.M. Sherman of Defiance, Mo. His second wife was Miss Clara Howard of Montpelier, Vermont. They were married at the residence of their friend, B.C. Pierce, near Flint Hill, St. Charles Co., Oct 25, 1845. She preceded him to the Spirit World in 1895. Of this marriage four children survive: Mrs. Sylvia Bangs, of Eagle Grove, Iowa; Dr. G.H. Sherman, Eads, Colo.; Mrs. M. Brown and Miss Ella Sherman of Dalton, Georgia. Brother Sherman leaves one brother, W.W. Sherman, of St. Louis, and one sister, Mrs. M.J. Guiiey, of Ashley, Mo.
About twelve years ago, Brother Sherman with his wife and youngest daughter, Miss Ella, moved to Georgia. The change was made in the hope that the milder climate of Georgia would be beneficial to the health of Mrs. Sherman. He was then in comparatively good health, and was a strong man of his age. About 8 years ago he had an attack of grippe, from the effects of which he never fully recovered. He seemed gradually to lose the free use of his limbs, and in his walk this affliction became very manifest.
As a preacher he was earnest and sympathetic without even an approach at being bolsterous. His sermons were always carefully studied and delivered with calmness, and in well-chosen words. While they were not fully written out, he seldom preached without copious notes. He was one of the most laborious and useful local preachers I ever saw.
The influence of Bro. Sherman especially in his earlier life, on the young  is worthy of note. Knowing the facts, as few now living know them, I venture to say that the early religious life of Enoch M. Marvins, was stimulated at the home, and under the influence of Daniel T. Sherman. Marvin’s brother Nat, had married Elizabeth Sherman, and this brought him much to the Sherman’s only three miles away. Here he had access not only to Sherman’s society, but to his little library, and it is well-known that at the Sherman’s request, he went to Old Bethlehem, to preach his first sermon; and it was at Sherman’s gate that Marvin and I parted when he started to his first circuit on the extreme western boundary of the state.
In writing this sketch of the friend of my youth, whom I have known and loved for more that 63 years. I find it hard to condense into a brief space, the materials at my command. He was naturally of a social and genial disposition, and this, with his chastened yet cheerful Christian spirit and life, commanded him to the high esteem and affection of every one.
