On Tuesday morning, September 10, 1901, Ernest A Cunningham departed this life at the home of his parents in Lauramie Township, aged 34y9m7d, after an illness of more than a year, ending in consumption and death. Mr Cunningham was the youngest of the three sons of Samuel A Cunningham, one of the oldest residents of that section of the county. He was a graduate of Wabash college, graduating with the class of 1890, the largest class ever sent forth by that institution. There were 32 young men in the class, and in the grades covering the entire college course, the deceased stood first in everything. He started out upon his life career, that of a teacher, with phenomenal success. His work was well done. It attracted attention, and he was advanced rapidly because of his own merit. He rapidly passed through the early years of his school career by being called year by year to better places. He was principal successively of the graded schools of Yountsville, Alamo and Waynetown, in Montgomery county, but four years ago was made principal of the Broad Ripple High school. Here he labored until by dropped the work from kind hands to die. In his earlier career he was assistant surveyor of Montgomery county and directed the survey and allotment of all the great ditches which have drained the swamp lands and made the northern portion of our sister county one of the garden spots of the state.
