      Birth: Feb. 22, 1863, Germany
      Death: Aug. 22, 1921
      Maywood, Cook County, Illinois

      August worked as a cabinet maker, his death certificate shows he died from "Strangulation?due to hanging with rope around his neck" and "suicidal intent?while temporary insane?due to wifes [sic] illness." This seems odd since his wife lived until 1935.

      Gertrude Catarina Schwald Ackerman (1890 - 1946)*
      William George Schwald (1891 - 1942)*
      Edward Andrew Schwald (1894 - 1944)*
      Arthur Andrew Schwald (1896 - 1957)*
      Helen Martha Schwald Clukie (1899 - 1973)*
