William R. Sheeler

(From Tuesday's Daily)

Coroner L. E. Lewis learned last night that the man who met death at Willow Creek Saturday night by falling from a Michigan Central train, was William R. Sheeler, 20 years old, of Michigan City. He was the support of his father and mother by employment obtained in a chair factory. Mr. Sheeler and Harry Westpahl, companion of Sheeler on the fatal trip to Gary, came to Chesterton last night, identified the body, and conferred with Dr. Lewis here today in regard to moving the remains. Sheeler and Westpahl were beating their way on the train. Sheeler was missed at the destination, but it did not occur to Westpahl that the former might have fallen off.
