Mr. James A. Refferty,
Bureau of Investigation,
N. Y. City,

Dear Sir:

In reply to your letter of the 3d instant regarding the correspondence of William B. Schwartz while in this institution, I beg to advise that he received no communications from Julius Hochfelder. On June 18, 1906, however Schwartz received a letter from his brother H. A. Schwartz, Loudenville, Ohio. This may possibly be the H. Swarts you have reference to.

Respectfully,

Warden

___________________________________

Dr. Henry A. Schwartz was the son of Nicholas Schwartz and his second wife Barbara (Kunz) Schwartz. He was born in Ohio, 6 years after the family emigrated from Switzerland. The obituary gives Henry a fairly good biography so there isn’t much more to add.

Henry and his wife Anna are buried at the Loudonville Cemetery.
