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


A Sad Case.
A young girl named Flemming went from Michigan City to Jackson Center several weeks ago, and secured work in the family of Philo Carter. One day last week the girl gave birth to a child, which is alive and well. The disgrace nearly drove her crazy, and it is said that on two occasions she attempted to smother it to death. Failing in this the girl Saturday took a big dose of poison, dying during the afternoon. She had formerly lived in Valparaiso, and before she expired, gave the name of a prominent citizen of Valparaiso as her betrayer, and swore that a young man named Grant Williams is the father of the child. There is great excitement over the affair and prosecutions are apt to follow. The unfortunate victim was buried at Jackson Center Sunday.
