Edward’s obituary provides an interesting biography:6

DEATH OF EDWARD SCHELL.

Residents of Rye and Port Chester will be pained to learn of the death of Edward Schell, Esq., which took place at his residence, No. 53 Clinton Place, New York City, on Sunday afternoon at 4 o’clock, after a short but severe illness. Mr. Schell had not been in his usual good health for the past four or five weeks, but it was not until Friday that alarming signs showed themselves. He from that date grew rapidly worse, and despite the best medical skill he rapidly succumbed to blood poisoning. After less than three days confinement he passed away painlessly. The cause of dissolution was urenic blood poisoning. The distinguished citizen will be remembered by our people as the public spirited gentleman who for many years has had his country residence on the road to the Steamboat Dock, one of the most charming retreats on the Sound. He was born in Rhinebeck, N.Y., November 7th, 1819 and was therefore 74 years old at the time of his death. His first schooling was in the Starr Institute in his native town, which he left at the age of ten years, to begin active commercial life in the City of New York. His first employ was with Wright & Co., Linen importers of Cedar Street. Even at that tender age he showed those qualities that the self made man needs so essentially, and by that hard earnest work which characterized him throughout, he rose from errand boy, clerk, etc., until step by step he advanced to the important position of Foreign Buyer for the firm, a responsibility in those days which was considered a great one. His apprenticeship in the dry good trade developed independence and energy which required a greater field for the young merchant, and severing his connection with the linen firm he joined fortunes with an associate under the firm name of Louis S. Fellows & Schell, being the junior partner of the jewelry firm which had quarters in the building 21 Maiden Lane. This business was continued profitably for about twenty years, when Mr. Schell entered on the financial career which has eventuated in such grand success, the first step being his election as a Trustee of the Manhattan Savings Institution, succeeding later as the treasure of said institution. In 1876 he was elected Presid’t of the same institution, giving his general attention to it, and virtually controlling its large interests. Mr. Schell, in 1847, married Miss Jane L. Heartt, of Troy, N.Y., daughter of the then Mayor of that City, Jonas C. Heartt, afterwards speaker in the Lower House of the State Legislature. Of this union there were two children: Edward H. Schell and Mary Emily Schell, both of whom are now living. Mrs. Schell died in New York City in 1880. Mr. Schell was a member of the St. Nicholas and Manhattan Club, St. Nicholas Society, the St. Joherland Society, The Down-Town Association; he was also a trustee of St. Luke’s Hospital, the American Institute, Northern Dispensary, a director of the Manhattan Life Insurance Company, Citizen’s Fire Insurance Company, Citizens Bank, Butchers and Drovers National Bank, Union Trust Company and the Third National Bank of New York City. He was also connected with Trinity School. He was a member of the Episcopal Communion, and for many years a warden of Ascension P. E. Church, of New York City. In Rye, he was a most valued member of Christ Parish, giving largely for all charities and parish work. During his busy life Mr. Schell had given much of his time to the work of public education, being at one time a school trustee. He was a most unassuming and unpretentious man, and never sought public office, though his prominence in business circles could have elevated him to the highest position in the gift of the people. Wherever he was known, at the clubs, or in the institutions with which he was connected, the announcement of his death caused general sorrow and regret. The funeral services were held from the Ascension Episcopal Protestant Church, 5th Avenue and 10th Street yesterday at 10:30 a.m., and interment was in Woodlawn Cemetery.

The New York Tribune of this morning has the following: “As the coffin was borne into the church it was preceded by Robert Schell, the dead man’s brother; Mrs. Robert Schell, E. H. Schell, his son; Mrs. E. H. Schell, Miss Mary E. Schell, his daughter; Francis Schell, a nephew, and Mrs. Francis Schell, Samuel Cragin, his son-in-law, and Miss Florence Cragin, Miss Jennie Cragin, and Miss Elsie Cragin. Then came pall bearers. They were: Judge A. R. Lawrence, Robert Remsen, Edward King, Henry Tabot, Joseph Bird, Joseph Park, W. H. Oakley, and George W. Quintard. At the end of the services the body was taken to Woodlawn Cemetery. Only the members of the family and a few intimate friends accompanied it.”

Among those present at the Church were Cornelius Vanderbilt... [the article continues and concludes with the names of 46 other people].

The publication, Documents of the Senate of the State of New York of 1910, provides an interesting biographical sketch for Edward:3

Edward Heartt Schell

Edward Heartt Schell was born in Troy, New York, in 1848, where he lived with his grandfather, Jonas Heartt, who was at one time mayor of Troy. He moved to New York city when a boy and lived here up to the time of his death on the 25th of January, 1910.

He was elected a trustee of the Northern Dispensary in 1889 and served the dispensary as a member of the board, until a few days before his death. His father, Edward Schell, was also a member of the board of trustees of the dispensary, having been elected in 1861, and serving as such to the time of his death in 1893. In 1876 his father served as second vice-president; in 1877 as first vice-president, and in 1878 as president of the board of trustees.

Edward Heartt Schell was graduated from Yale University in the class of 1870, and later studied law at Columbia, and was admitted to the bar of this State. He was married in 1886 to Cornelia E. Barnes, daughter of the late William Evarts Barnes, who survives him, as does also his sister, Miss M. E. Schell, who resides at 9 Washington Square North in this city. Among the many clubs and societies that he was a member of were the St. Nicholas and Manhattan Clubs, the Bar Association of the City of New York, and the St. Nicholas Society; he was also a director of the Manhattan Life Insurance Company and of the Manhattan Savings Institution.

Mr. Schell was a genial companion, a gentleman in the broadest sense of the word, and a fellow member whose memory we will all cherish in fond recollections, and in his death the trustees have lost an esteemed associate.

We extend to his widow and his sister our heartfelt sympathy in their bereavement.
