LARWILL SOLDIER DIED THIS MORNING. Martha Goodrich dead in same home. Brother Lying At Point of Death In Larwill With Little Hope for His Recovery.

For two adults to pass away within little more than twelve hours in the same home is unusual, yet that has been the sad experience of the inmates of the household of Alonzo King, a half mile from Larwill. Sunday evening, Martha Goodrich, who had been assisting in nursing and caring for Mr. King, while seemingly in perfect health, quickly passed away, and the morning after, Mr. King's death followed, and the house is truly a house of mourning.

Alonzo King, for many years a resident of Richland township, not far from Larwill, passed away Monday morning at 8:30 after a prolonged illness. His health began failing fully a year ago and for the past two months he was confined to his home. He was a sufferer from pernicious anaemia or impoverishment of the blood. Physicians made every effort to banish the disease and prolong the life of the sufferer, but their efforts were unavailing.

Alonzo King was born in Medina county, Ohio, March 13, 1845; died May 6th, 1912, aged 67 years 1 month and 23 days. When a child three or four years of age he moved with his parents to Whitley county. When but a boy of 16 years he enlisted as a member of Company E, 44th I. V. October 5th, 1861. He was discharged from service October 20th, 1862, owing to ill health. He re-enlisted May 3rd, 1863 with the 7th battery, 5th artillery, I. V. 3rd brigade, and was discharged July 20th, 1865, with the rank of corporal. After coming home he enlisted in the regular army and served four years in the west.

Since returning home from the army he devoted most of his time to farming and doing carpenter work. He was a member of the G. A. R. and of the Grange, taking quite an active part in both organizations.

He was united in marriage January 8th, 1887, to Alice Barber, and they have two sons, Carl, one of the rural mail carriers out of Larwill, and Ray, a brakeman on the railroad. The former is married and has one child. He is also survived by two brothers, Homer, of Larwill, and William, of Mishawaka; a sister, Mrs. Wm. Freeman, of Mishawaka, and a step-sister, Mrs. James Briggs, of Hobart, Indiana.

His brother Homer, who resides in Larwill, is believed to be on his deathbed, and it was a question which of them would die first. His recovery is regarded as extremely doubtful. He is suffering from an affection of the heart. The funeral will be held at the Methodist church in Larwill Wednesday afternoon, and Rev. Sanders, of Churubusco, will deliver the sermon; interment in Lake View cemetery.
