Cotten, Obituary/Death NoticePorter County obituaries and death notices . . . .


The County.
A Kansas paper states that a certain Hank Lewis died a short time ago who before his death confessed complicity in the murder of Cotten, who was missed 5 or 6 years ago from a shanty in the Kankakee swamp. He said there was another man with him, but would not disclose his name. He said they got only 40, most of the money they expected to get being deposited in a Hebron store and subsequently withdrawn by Cotten's brother. Suspicion rested upon this man and another who was seen with him the next morning coming out of the swamp. Murder will out.
