It appears the fact checker hired by The New York Times back in 1899 wasn't very good. Retired dentist Dr. Daniel A. F. Schwenk found a few errors in his great-uncle Lt. M. K. Schwenk's obituary including his name and hometown. The Times has since corrected the mistakes saying it's never too late to set the record straight.
