Theo. Schaub Passes to Peace

Theodore Schaub, one of our best known citizens, passed away at his home in this city Saturday morning, after an extended illness from heart trouble which had later developed into pleuro-pneumonia. Surrounded by every attention that devoted care could suggest, he passed quietly away at an early hour into the endless sleep which, sooner or later, comes to all.

Theodore H. Schaub was born near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, December 25, 1854, and came to California with his parents when about a year old. The family located at Diamond Springs, and owned what is now known as the Larkin mine property. After the death of his mother, ten years later, young Schaub, the only child, went to Oakland, where he attended school and later was in business for a number of years, coming to Placerville in 1896 as manager of the Ohio House for McKee & Melton. He afterwards conducted the same in partnership with the late Thomas Hayden, and has since made his home here, with the exception of about eighteen months spent in Oakland after his marriage to Miss Emma McConnell, who survives him.

Theo. Schaub was a man of warm heart and generous impulses, and his many acts of kindness to those less fortunate than himself added to the many friends who sincerely mourn his loss, a wealth of beautiful floral offerings testifying to their regret and sympathy.

The funeral took place at the family residence, Rev. J.W. Winkley officiating, assisted by Misses Jessie Blair, Agnes Alderson, A.S. Fox and R. Irving, with appropriate hymns. The service of the Eagles was conducted by the local Aerie for their departed brother, who belonged to an Oakland Aerie. Interment was in the family plot in Union cemetery.
