Coroner's Inquest Report.
State of Indiana,
Porter County.

BE IT REMEMBERED, That on the 1st day of September, 1876, information was given to me that the dead body of a man was lying at the Porter Station in Westchester township, said county and state, supposed to have come to his death by casualty, and I thereupon caused a jury to be summoned, sworn, and charged to ascertain, so far as possible, the cause and circumstances of said death. Witnesses, accordingly, were called and sworn, and testimony taken and reduced to writing, signed by both said jury and myself, and filed in the Clerk's office of said county; whereupon said jury made their verdict that decedent's surname was Allstraut and his first name unknown, and that he came to his death by some cause unknown; that he was five feet four inches high, 70 years old, light made and of light complexion. No valuables were found upon his person except 90 cents in money. As he had no relatives or friends to take charge of his body it was left for the trustees of the township to provide for its burial.

Coroner of Porter County.
