April 22, 1903
Postmaster Isaac Shuster died at his residence in Farmerville last Friday evening, after a prolonged illness with rheumatic troubles. Several days before the end came his family and friends realized that death was the inevitable; and hence they were in a measure prepared for it.
Mr. Shuster had reached the ripe age of 77 years, and had been postmaster at this place for the past 30 years. He was born in Germany and came to this country about 45 years ago. He leaves a widow and nine children, all grown, to mourn his loss. Mr. Shuster was a prominent Mason and Kinghts of Pythias. In the latter order he carried an insurance policy of $1000. His remains were laid at rest in the Jewish cemetery in Farmerville Sunday morning with Masonic ceremonies. Mr. Shuster was a good citizen, kind, charitable and upright, and his loss is keenly felt by the community in general.
