On 2 November 1907 the Boston Globe carried a story on page 2 headlined "Kills Himself With Shotgun - Paul Koch said to have been despondent." It tells us that "while the family were preparing for supper shortly after 6 o'clock Mr. Koch went into the cellar of his house. Members of the family heard the report of the gun and rushed to the cellar. Mr. Koch was found lying on the floor with a wound in his right temple." He was removed to the Relief station, but died a few minutes later. The article says that the year before Paul Koch had attempted to end his life by "cutting his wrist with a razor. He had been suffering from despondency. He was retired from business." One can only imagine the grief of his wife and eight children.
