Mr. John Sehweers was born Feb-
ruary 21, 1864, on the ranch in
Medina County, Texas, and died
June 2, 1028, at the age of 64 years,
3 ni nths ami 11 days. The deceased
had been suffering for over a year,
and abnut 4 months preceding his
death his throat was paralyzed to
such an extent that gradually he lost
his speech, and it was also very dif-
ficult for him to swallow his food.
All that medical aid and loving hand-
could do to spare his life was done,
but the Lord thought otherwise.
Mr. Sehweers was raised in a
Christian home and was taught the
way of righteousness in his early
In his younger years, he joined the
M. E. church, south, and was a mem-
ber of the same until his death. For
a time he served his church in the
capacity of a Sunday School Super-
intendent in the San Marcos Street
Church of San Antonio, and for
many years he was a trustee of the
New Fountain Church.
On January 4, 1890, he was mar-
ried to Miss Anna Ellebracht. Out
of this union came seven children, of
whom one son preceded his father
in death. The children still living are;
Henry of Hondo, Johnny, Mrs. W. A.
Brucks and Mrs. Hugo Balzen of
Medina County, Mrs. Ella Shrews-
bury of Houston, and Mrs. Louis
Mote of San Antonio.
After their marriage. Mr. and Mrs.
Sehweers made their home in Kerr-
ville for several years; later on they
moved to San Antonio, and in 1902
they came to Medina County and
made H their permanent home.
Besides his sorrowful wife and
above named, children he leaves 7
grandchildren and 2 brothers and 8
sisters to mourn his death. The names
of the latter are: Mrs. W. H. Wiem-
ers of New Fountain, Mrs. J. W.
Kothmann, Mrs. J. T. Zuercher, Mrs.
George Gerdes, Henry and Willi-,
Mrs. Pete Bless, all of San Antonio,
Mrs. Ben Gerdes of Tarpley, Mrs.
E. E. Lehmberg of Sturm Hill and
Mrs. F. Stiegler of Vandenberg.
The tuneral services were conduct-
ed by the writer in German and
English languages in the presence of
a very large number of relatives and
friends. The body was laid to rest
in the Quihi Cemetery underneath a
mound of beautiful flowers given by
loved ones and friends.
May the dear Lord comfort the
bereaved ones with the hope of a
great reunion in heaven.
