Death of Judge Dorman

Arcadia, La., July 2.-Judge J.A. Dorman, a well known lawyer of this place, died at his family residence in the southern part of town Wednesday night of acute indigestion.

Mr. Dorman had an attack of indigestion last Monday, but thought he had fully recovered from it and intended going down town the next day to transact some business, when the attack returned again and he succumbed to it after an hour or two of intense suffering. His death comes as a distinct shock to his many friends in Bienville parish whom he has been actively associated with practically all of his life, having moved here a few years after his birth from Chambers county, Alabama, where he was born in 1846. Judge Dorman was admitted to the bar of the State of Louisiana in 1872
and has been actively engaged in the practice of law ever since that date, having a large and extensive practice in this parish at the time of his death and was recognized as one of the leading lawyers of the State.
He leaves five children, Jim Dorman of Crowley, Ben Dorman of Shreveport, George Dorman of this place and Misses Virginia and Carrie Dorman, besides a host of other relatives and friends to mourn his untimely death.
Interment took place in the Arcadia cemetery yesterday afternoon at 5 o'clock.
