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


The unknown man found in the sand at Michigan City last Friday, on which Dr. Letherman held an inquest, had nothing on his person for means of identification. A very fine gold watch, which W. H. Vail received for repairs, and a purse with eleven cents was all of the effects. Dr. Letherman informed the Vidette that there was 25 pounds of sand in his pockets. It is supposed that he was one of the men washed from the pier a short time since.
