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


A sad accident occurred on the Isaiah McGinley farm, six miles south of Valparaiso last Sunday afternoon. There is a small lake on the farm, which is very deep. Henry Morehouse went to the lake to take a bath, accompanied by his seven-year old son, and a grown brother. The men placed the child in a boat, and they jumped in the water and swam away. In their absence, the child fell in the water, and was drowned. Some of the men saw the child fall in, and that they swam as quickly as they could to the rescue, but that the body sank out of sight at once, and could not be found.
