| John Joseph Schliessmann, 72 years, 1 month and 11 days old, an aged and highly respected citizen of this city, died suddenly from heart trouble, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. R. F. Barnard, 37 West Mechanic St., Monday night at 10 o'clock. Mr. Schliessmann had been in apparently good health for one of his years but was suddenly taken ill, and his death resulted within a short time after the attack.
Mr. Schliessmann was born in the state of New York on March 6, 1850, and at an early age came to Indiana, where he located in Rush county. For more that 38 years, he resided in Manilla, but last September with his wife came to this city where they have since resided at the Barnard home. Until a few years ago, Mr. Schliessmann owned a harness shop at Manilla, where he was known by practically every citizen of that place. He was a man of excellent character and the life which he led was an ideal one. He was a devoted member of the Manilla M. E. church and while a resident at that place always took a prominent part in all church activities.
His only [known*] surviving relatives are the widow, Mrs. Sallie Schliessmann and the daughter. Mrs. Barnard is now at the Methodist Hospital at Indianapolis and does not know of her father's death.

* Based on some old letters, I believe John J. had relatives still living in New York.
