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.
