Tragic Death

Watertown Gazette, 09 17 1915


About 11 o’clock last night Frank L. Schultz [Schulz], a former city mail carrier, was found leaning forward impaneled on the picket fence of Mrs. Frederick Wagner, 315 Seventh Street, just one block west of Mr. Schultz’s home, his intestines being perforated by the pickets.  It was with considerable difficulty that he was taken from the fence.  He was immediately taken to his home and a physician sent for, but before the arrival of the physician Mr. Schultz had died.  He was 52 years of age and is survived by his wife, four sons and four daughters.  At this writing no arrangements have been made for his funeral.  Mr. Schultz was well thought of in Watertown by a large acquaintance, and his tragic ending is greatly regretted.
