    OBITUARY:
    Found Dead in Field
    Gabriel Myers, of Perry Township, Expires Suddenly
    Gabriel Myers, a well known Perry township farmer, was found dead in the field about forty rods from his home, two miles north of Pettit, at 5 o'clock last evening, by his son Calvin. His head struck a rail when he fell and there was a slight abrasion over the left eye. Mr. Myers left the house about 4 o'clock to bring up the cows. He was gone longer than usual and his wife called to him, but he did not respond. She then sent her son to look for him and he was found lifeless. Death is supposed to have resulted from heart failure. Mr. Myers was born in Pennsylvania October 25, 1825, and was the last of a family of seven children. He came to this county in 1866 and was well known. Mr. Myers was a member of the Zion U. B. church and was an honest and industrious man. He had been married sixty-one years and leaves a widow and the following children: John H. Myers, of West Lafayette; Mrs. Levi Shively, of this city; William E. Myers, of Monitor; Mrs. J. A. Sensenbaugh, Calvin A. and G. E. Myers, of Perry township. The funeral will be held from Zion church Saturday morning at 10:30 o'clock and the interment will be in the Zion cemetery.
