Henry Py, 1868-1918

According to his death record, available at FamilySearch, Henry Py was the son of Jacob and Barbara (Didelius) Py, born on April 8, 1868. His occupation was stone mason. An image of his death certificate reveals that he died from apoplexy, and that over work also contributed to his death.

An article in the October 22, 1918 issue of the Sandusky Register reported that Henry Py died on October 21, 1918 at the Schlenk House. Marquart undertakers took charge of funeral arrangements, and burial was at Oakland Cemetery. Henry Py was survived by a brother, Frank Py, of Chicago, and a sister, Mrs. Jay Balduff of Sandusky. The word brother appears at the top of the tombstone of Henry Py.
