Coroner's Inquest Report.
State of Indiana,
Porter County.

BE IT REMEMBERED, That on the 10th day of November, 1877, information was given to me that the body of a dead woman had been found upon the shore of Lake Michigan in Pine Township, of said county, supposed to have come to her death by violence of casualty, and I thereupon required a jury to be summoned, sworn and charged to ascertain so far as possible the cause and circumstances of said death. Witnesses accordingly were called and sworn and their material evidence reduced to writing, signed by both said jury and myself and filed in the clerk's office of said county; whereupon said jury made their verdict that the decedent's name was unknown, that she was 5 feet 4 inches high and well formed, dressed with only buckskin gaiters, striped stockings and elastics, and came to her death by drowing. No valuables were found about her person, nor did any relatives or friends appear to claim her body. She was therefore left in charge of the township trustee for burial.

Coroner of Porter County.
