“Death of an Estimable Young Man. Charles Conrad, youngest son of Daniel Conrad, of this vicinity, died of typhoid fever at his father’s residence Tuesday morning, August 13, 1889, in the 24th year of his age. He was an associate of his brother, E.E. Conrad, photographer, and bade fair to achieve great success as an artist. In all respects an exemplary young man, his untimely death falls heavily upon a host of relations and friends.” [FMJ 8-17-1889, p. 1].
“In Memory of Charlie Conrad. Who died August 13, 1889, by one who know his many good qualities.
Upon thee, O Charlie, young and true
Has fallen the shadow of love’s eclipse;
Closed for aye are the bright blue eyes,
Silent forever the dear loved lips.
Yet he is not dead but sleepeth.
Into the home that held him so dear
He cometh no more at morn or eve;
Hushed is the sound of his voice at the door;
Yet we who loved him should not grieve.
For he is not dead but sleepeth.
And to you, fond brothers, is given to know
How much Death leaves when he takes away
The voiceless life and the dear loved face,
And the fast closed eyes that seem to say—
‘I am not dead but sleeping.’
Unto you, loved sisters, who sat with him
Around the board in past happy years,
Are left fond memory’s asphodels,
And the warm rain of loving tears.
