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


Mystery surrounds the identity of a man lying today in the Stinchfield-Fehrman undertaking parlors, who met death late yesterday two miles east of Wheeler, when he was struck by Nickel Plate train number one, the westbound passenger leaving this city shortly after 3 o'clock. The body was taken on the same train to Wheeler and Coroner L. E. Lewis went there and brought it here.

The man is believed to have been about 40 years old. His hair was tinged with gray and he wore a red beard. The only things found on his person were some theatrical memoranda in lead pencil, and a sandwich in his pocket. The body was badly mangled.

A man answering the description called at the Nickel Plate depot here yesterday morning and procured a time table.
