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


Found dead in the Kankakee, near Grape Island, a German by the name of Drager. He sold a piece of land several weeks ago, and the last seen of him he borrowed a neighbor's wagon to go hunting. Lorenso Brainard found him floating in the river, a bullet hole in his head, and his body had been weighted down with stones, but not sufficient to hold him after he had been in the water a while. It is near the same place where Cotten was murdered four or five years ago. We are told that the owner of the wagon has been arrested. The full particulars have not been fully learned.
