She Jumped From Buggy and Alighted On Her Head, Sustaining Fracture of the Skull - An Old Resident of the County

Mrs. Elizabeth Doctor, who was so badly injured Saturday evening in a runaway accident, died at 6 o'clock Sunday evening at Hope hospital, where she was removed. Mrs. Doctor sustained her injured by jumping from the buggy. She alighted upon her head, fracturing her skull and it was feared from the first, in view of her advanced age, that she could not withstand the shock. She was seventy-three years of age. Mrs. Doctor, who resided on a farm in Marion township, was a native of Germany. She was born in that county April 14, 1831, but she had been a resident of Allen county for fifty years. Her husband died over three years ago. The decedent is survived by the following children: Louis, Fred, George, Charles, Mathias and William Doctor, Mrs. Maggie Fackler, Mrs. Mary Schmidt, Mrs. Louis Schmidt and Martin Doctor. Mrs. Doctor was a woman of noble Christian character and lovable ways and during her residence of half a century in the county she won a large circle of friends who are shocked and grieved at her tragic death.

The body was removed in the Klaehn & Melching undertaking establishment and prepared for burial. The funeral will be held Wednesday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock at the family home, in Marion township and at 2 o'clock at Emanuel Lutheran church in that township, the Rev Zsehoche officiating.
