Alexander F. Lepell

An Old Citizen Dies Unexpectedly This Morning.
From Monday Edition.

At half past 5 o'clock this morning Mrs. A. F. Lepell was awakened by her husband grasping her arm. Turning to look at him she saw him attempt to speak and then fall back. When she raised up he was dead. Yesterday Mr. Lepell was in his usual health and attended a funeral in the afternoon. He retired early in the evening and did not complain of feeling at all unwell. For some time past however he has had periodical attacks of heart disease. Not many nights ago he suffered a severe attack after retiring and was forced to get up and walk the floor for awhile before he could obtain relief. This complaint was evidently the cause of his death.

A. F. Lepell was born February 22d, 1842, consequently was in the 44th year of his age at the time of his death. He has resided in Valparaiso for over 30 years.

The deceased leaves a wife and 3 children -- all sons, Frank, George and Otto. The family are completely prostrated with grief and Mrs. Lepell is seriously ill from shock.

Arrangements for the funeral will be made this afternoon.
