L. A. Bidden

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

BE IT REMEMBERED, That on the 18th day of February, 1877, information was given to me that the dead body of an unknwon man lay beside the railway near a mile south-east of Valparaiso, in said state and county, supposed to have come to his death by violence or 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 were therefore called and sworn, and evidence 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 name was L. A. Bidden, that his age was 30 years, and that he came to his death by congestion of the lungs. He was of dark complexion and of ordinary size. He wore dark pants and vest, light coat, black hat and calf-skin boots. No valuables being found about his person, and no friends appearing to take charge of him, his body was committed to the charge of Undertaker Noel for interment at the public cost.

Coroner Porter County.
