Peter M. Johnson

Peter M. Johnson, an aged Swedish farmer, living alone on his farm near Porter, was found dead in his bed Monday by neighbors. The discovery was made by neighbors who missed him Monday, and entered the house to ascertain the cause. It is supposed that he died in the morning, as the body was in such a condition to lead to that conclusion. Fearing foul play, Coroner Ketcham was notified and that official held an inquest Tuesday. He found that death was caused by heart disease. The funeral was held Wednesday.
