William Wittenmyre

By a letter written in Chicago by Burt Eddy, dated Jan. 4, we learn that Mr. Wm. Wittenmyre, known considerably here as husband of the lady known as Widow Currier, formerly of this place, died at his home there on the morning of the 4th. His death is thought to have resulted from a fall out of a wagon some weeks since upon his wife's farm on Twenty-mile Prairie, which at the time appeared to do him little or no injury, but subsequently seemed to have injured his spine, it seeming somewhat paralyzed. This paralysis increased until he died. He was confined about a week. His body was to be kept there a few days and then brought here for burial in the Valparaiso cemetery, but the letter does not show what day the burial will be. Mr. Wittenmyre was an intelligent and philanthropic man.
