John Vaux

A passenger supposed to have fallen from the New York fast train No. 464, going east, was found by Herbert Crawford and Wm. Wolverton about three miles east of Furnessville last Monday night, in a dying condition. He was taken to Michigan City, but afterwards sent back to Furnessville, as it was in Porter County that he was found, and there the Coroner's inquest should be held. A Coroner's inquest developed the following facts. His name was John Vaux, and that he came from Milwaukee, and was on his way to Stafford, Ontario. On the body was found $1.84, a silver watch, and a railroad ticket. A telegram was sent to Stafford, Canada, and in answer a response came that Vaux was a mason, and lived at that place. The Masons of Michigan City took charge of the body and forwarded it to his relatives in Canada.
