Three drowning's Last Week

Oscar Schake Meets Death at Clear Lake

Thursday word was received here by his father that Oscar Schake had been drowned at Clear Lake.

Oscar Schake

The facts surrounding the sad death of Oscar Schake are, as we learn them, that he was working for Mr. Lamson, a liveryman at Clear Lake, and Thursday about 10 A.M., he took a team of horses down into the lake to wash them. He was riding one horse and leading the other and swam the horses out around a steamboat anchored at the landing and in passing around the steamer the horse he was riding got caught in the anchor chain, throwing it over backwards. Oscar came to the surface twice, the second time calling for help, that he could not swim, and then the waters closed over him for the last time.

Parties near at hand started at once to recover the body which was found within twenty minutes from the time he went down. It was caught onto or under the anchor chain. Four physicians were on the spot when the body was brought to shore and did everything in their power but could not revive the spark of life, though he had been under the water but so short a time.

Oscar's home was at Nashua but he had gone to Clear lake about ten days preceding his death to visit his sister, Mrs. Ray McRoberts, and obtained employment while there. he was 17 years of age and had lived nearly all his life in this vicinity, having been born in Bremer county. A boy of good habits and industrious, he was universally liked by all who knew him and his untimely, tragic death is mourned by many friends.

The family, composed of father, Herman Schake, and three sisters; Mrs. McRoberts, Mrs. Frank Shannon of Burchinal, and Mrs. Osic Bullen, of Nashua; three brothers; Edward, of Waterloo, Will, of Burchinal and Charles, of Nashua, have the sympathy of the entire community in their bereavement. The body was brought to Nashua Friday and the funeral was held in the Methodist church, Sunday afternoon, conducted by Rev. Stevens and the remains were laid to rest in Greenwood cemetery, by the side of his mother who died about two years ago.

The Iowa Recorder, Green, Iowa, July 15, 1903

Nashua, July 9,

Three deaths from drowning within as many days last week brought sadness to many hearts in this vicinity. The first was the drowning of Ed. Roelziene Wednesday evening in the Cedar near the Chester Wilcox farm, where he was employed. Thursday word was received here by his father that Oscar Schake had been drowned at Clear Lake, and Friday evening a messenger came to town to get help to drag the river for the body of Thyge Anderson, who had just drownedin the Cedar at the Burgess farm. All three were young men just entering into the full vigor of manhood.
