Death of Dr. Grindle
The death of Dr. H. D. Grindle, for nine years a resident of this city, occurred yesterday morning at his residence 1757 State street. Dr. Grindle was 75 years of age and was a native of Maine. Previously to coming to this city for the benefit of his health he had resided in New York city where a son and daughter now live. Some time previous to his death Dr. Grindle had retired from the practice of his profession. The children have been notified and one or both are expect to arrive here next Friday, when the funeral services will be announced. The body is being prepared for shipment by Whitson & co., and after the funeral will be sent to New York to be interred in the family plot in that city. With it will be shipped the body of Mrs. Grindle, which has been lying in the vault at Mount Hope cemetery.

He was a Manhattan physician and abortionist in the 1870s; "On August 27, 1868, Susannah Lattin died post-partum at his illegal abortion and adoption clinic at 6 Amity Place (now West Third Street) in NYC. Her death led to an investigation which resulted in regulation of abortin clinics and adoptions in NYC. Grindle was indicted for ‘performing an abortion' on Lattin. The trail ended in his acquittal with only a censure from the judge because the proscecution proved only that the women died at his institution during childbirth and not during, or because, of an abortion."; see wikipedia.org for more info.
