José Texidor Busquets: Announcement of his death: from La Vanguardia

This was printed on the front page of La Vanguardia on 2nd April 1892 (translated from the Spanish) - [this date was also recorded on a piece of paper by Antonio Texidor Catasús - the Enciclopedia Catalana shows his death to be 1907 which is an error]:

Don José Texidor y Busquets has died in Caldetas (Q.E.P.D.)

His bereaved wife, sons, daughters, daughter-in-law doña Dolores Catasús y Bues, sister-in-law, aunts and uncles, nephews and nieces, cousins and other relatives, to join their friends and acquaintances in so sensitive a loss, asking that they keep them present in their prayers and attend TODAY, Saturday, at 3pm at the station Francia, to accompany the body to the parish church of St Justo and St Pastor and from there to the final resting place, the cemetery Sud-Oeste (South-West Cemetery). The service is open to all.

Also on page 2:
