Harry Hurst

State of Indiana, Porter County, SS:
Be it remembered, that on the 4th day of Sept., 1882, information was given to me that the dead body of a boy lay in Center township, in said state and county, supposed to have come to this death by violence of casualty, and to ascertain as so far as possible the cause and circumstances of said death, witnesses were called and sworn, and their material evidence reduced to writing, signed by myself, and filed in the clerk's office of said county.

Whereupon, I find decendent's name was Harry Hurst, that he was 14 years old, of light complexion, 5 feet high, well dressed, and that he came to his death by reason of injuries received from passenger train No. 5, of the Chicago & Grand Trunk Railway, at or near South Town Junction, said train passing over the body, fracturing the skull, severing the left arm, and otherwise injuring the body. His person was committed to the charge of an undertaker for delivery to friends for burial.

Coroner of Porter County.
