The body of Jacob Gundell (sometimes spelled Gondall )was found near Venice, Ohio on February 26, 1879. It is believed that he may have been robbed. An article in the Feb. 26, 1879 issue of the Sandusky Register reported that Mr. Gondall mostly likely died from exposure to the cold winter weather. Jacob Gondall was buried at Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery. No known relatives were living in the immediate area. He had formerly been employed at Hubbard's lumber yards in Sandusky. Jacob was about age 55 or 56 at the time of his unfortunate death.
