Andrew S. Wilson

Death by Sunstroke.

Andrew S. Wilson, a respected citizen of Washington township and a prominent member and deacon in the Baptist church of this city, fell dead yesterday when plowing in his potato patch. He had been at the house for a drink only a short time before, and at near noon his horse came deliberately home alone. On search he was found lying with his face upon the ground, as if having fallen behind the plow, and without evidence of any cause unless it be by what is usually termed sun-stroke. The funeral will take place at his residence at 11 o'clock to-morrow. Obituary next week.
