Sudden Death of Walter Morris:
Walter Morris, a carpenter residing on Twenty-sixth street, died very suddenly on the street near his house about 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, and death is believed to have resulted from disease of the heart. Mr. Morris was well advanced in years, and came to this city about two years ago. He was employed in the construction of a number of residences in the Belt addition or Hulls mill area, and was an industrious and prudent gentleman. He was a church member and a sincere Christian. His life was a useful one and he was highly esteemed by all who knew him. The suddenness of his death was a severe shock to the family and its members have the sympathy of all in their sorrow.
Funeral took place at 9th St. Church with Odd Fellows being in charge. (From a Lafayette newspaper)
