Andrew S. Wilson

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

BE IT REMEMBERED, THAT ON THE seventeenth day of August, 1881, information was given to me that the dead body of a man lay in Washington township, in said state and county, supposed to have come to his death by violence or casualty, and to ascertain so far as possible the cause and circumstances of said death, witnesses were called and sworn, and their material evidence reduced to writing, signed by myself, and filed in the Clerk's office of said county.

Whereupon, I find decedent's name was Andrew Wilson, that he was 56 years old, of dark complexion, 5 feet 10 inches high, dressed plainly. That he came to his death from the effects of prostration by death, or what is usually termed sun-stroke, and that his person was committed to the charge of his friends for burial.
Coroner of Porter County.
