  • Notes 
    • Charles Mutschler was born in Grafenhausen to Ignaz Mutschler and
      Carolina (Koeble). His father had died and his mother remarried so he
      followed his brother Joseph to this country and to Ohio. He came from
      the port of Havre on the ship Utica, Nov 17 1842, arriving at the port of
      New York His brothers, August ,Ambrose,and sister Ursula followed but
      on different ships. So Joseph, Charles, August, Ambrose and Ursula all
      came to this country leaving their Mother and another sister still in
      Grafenhausen, Baden, Germany.
      He married Katherine Martin who also came from Germany. The
      1859-60 Tiffin City Directory shows Mutschler, Chas. law student n s
      Franklin b River and Railroad. He was 34 at this time. The 1860 census
      shows him as an attorney. The 1870 census shows him as City Marshal.He
      was a practicing attorney with Stein & Johnson. He served as Deputy
      Sheriff. He was Director of the Infirmary. He also transacted a great deal
      of business for the German settlers. He was a manger of the Seneca
      Horse Guards, which never permitted a single horse thief to get away.
      Seneca Advertiser Dec 13, 1895;
      Charles Mutschler is Dead
      - The Well Known ex-Marshal Passed Peacefully Away at Ten O'clock
      Wednesday Evening. -
      One of the best known men that ever claimed Tiffin as his home is
      dead.
      Scarcely one of the older residents of this city-or younger either for
      that matter-but what knew Charles Mutschler. It is he who now lies cold
      in death.
      About seven months ago the deceased was attacked with what was
      considered la grippe and, though of robust constitution, it seemed
      inpossible to shake off what has proven his death malady. For over the
      weeks he lay almost constantly at death's door and at 10 o'clock
      Wednesday evening the grim reaper claimed him for his own.
      Many men, who have gone before and who still live, served this city and
      county long and faithfully, but none had or has a more enviable record
      than that which Charley Mutschler earned through fidelity to duty and a
      scrupulous regard for every trust of which he was the custodian.
      During the cholera plague of '53 and '54, the deceased with the late
      William Hoit and many other loyal citizens, living and dead, labored long
      and hard for the relief of the afflicted and he was ever ready to lend a
      helping hand, either by his means or personally, to his fellow-man in
      need.
      On April 3, 1865, the deceased was elected City Marshal by a
      marjority of 434 out of 584 votes cast. At the expiration of his term he
      was re-elected eight times. No comment is necessary upon that point,
      his continual re-election being the best evidence of his popularity and
      efficacy as an officer. He was also a practicing attorney having been, for
      five years, associated with Stein & Johnson, well known attorneys at
      that time--previous to '85. It was while being associated with the firm
      named that business engagements in the West compelled him to be much
      exposed and, while being thus subject to the elementsm his hearing
      became much inpaired. Mr. Mutschler also served as Deputy Sheriff under
      ex-Sheriff Werley; one term as infirmary Director and as a Notary Public
      transacted much business for the German settlers who came to this
      county in the early days. All with whom he came in contact will readily
      attest his honesty of purpose and continual desire to do the best he could
      for them. his removal, from active life to the grave, removes one whose
      example the rising generation will do will to emulate.
      Charles Mutschler was born in Baden, Germany, January 22, 1825, and ,
      not many years after, came to this country and settled in Seneca county.
      He ws married January 1, 1849, and four children, Lena, Josephine, Emma
      and Frank, blessed the union. Of the children, only the two latter survive
      and to them and their grief stricken mother is extended the heartfelt
      sympathy of a wide circle of friends.
      The funeral services will be held in St Josephs church at 9 O'clock
      Saturday morning.
