Gustave E. Georan

The Missing Gustave E. Georan if Found, in a Mill Slough in Chicago.

The whereabouts of Gustave E. Georan has been a preplexing question to the citizens of Porter county. During the early part of the month of March he appeared to be somewhat demented. On the 25th day of March August Pillman took him to Chicago at the request of Chas. Georan, gustave's brother, he telling Mr. Pillman that he needed no watching. They went direct to Dr. Davis' office, on the corner of State and Randolph streets.

The doctor examined him, and stated that his trouble originated in the stomach, from there it went to the heart, and finally coursed its way to his brain, but looked at the matter as not being of a serious character, giving him a prescription and telling him that he would be entirely well in several days. About 10 o'clock Mr. Pillman accompanied him to a drug store, requesting him to stay until he returned. At noon they eat dinner together, and Pillman and Georan started for North Chicago. Georan complained of it being somewhat cold and stated that he would go to the drug store and await his return.

At 3 o'clock in the afternoon Pillman returned, and could find no trace of Georan, the druggists stating they they did not see him since he departed in company with Pillman. After a thorough search, with the hopes of locating him, Pillman returned to Porter, and from that time on Georan's whereabouts have been a mystery until last Saturday he was found in the mill slough of the Illinois Central railroad tracks at Chicago.

He was 31 years old and unmarried. For several years Georan was a faithful employe in the brick yards of Porter, and owned a cozy home there, free from incumberance.

When found he had a gold watch, $7.35 in money and a snuff box. As near as can be ascertained he only took $10.00 to Chicago. His brother Chas. Georan, an employe of the brick syndicate, brought the remains to Porter. On Tuesday they were interred in the Chesterton cemetery.
