NO HEADSTONE ON THIS GRAVE

Aaron ALSPACH, 67, well-known sorghum and cider mill operator, of Leiters Ford, passed away at the home of his brother, Ephriam Alspach, Saturday evening at 9:30 o'clock. Death resulted from a bullet wound in his left temple, which was inflicted by his own hand on June 7th. The aged man who had operated a pressing mill at Leiters Ford for over two score of years made his home with Mr. and Mrs. Ephriam ALSPACH for the past six years. His health for the last number of years was greatly impaired by a stroke of paralysis and it was this physical affliction which caused him to end his life.
Last Monday morning, Mr. Alspach went to a shed near the cider mill and fired a bullet from an old .32 calibre pistol into his left temple. He then staggered to the house where his siter-in-law summoned neighbors and physicians. He was brought to Woodlawn hospital where he received surgical attention and was later removed to his home where he died without regaining complete consciousness.
Aaron, son of Ambrose and Samantha (ANGLEMYER) ALSPACH was born in Miami County, Ind., on October 19th, 1869. All of his life was spent in Miami and Fulton counties with the exception of a few years in North Dakota. He was a violinist in the ALSPACH BROTHERS and LOWE orchestra which attained considerable fame throughout northern Indiana and several times their small musical organization had broadcasting engagements over Chicago and Ft. Wayne stations. Mr. Alspach was a member of the Gilead Methodist church.
The survivors are four brothers, Ephriam [ALSPACH], Leiters Ford; Alfred [ALSPACH], of Rochester; Lester [ALSPACH] of Ray, N.D., and Charles [ALSPACH], of Trenton, N.D.
Funeral services will be held Wednesday afternoon at two o'clock at the Luckenbill Funeral Chapel, Leiters Ford. Rev. W. W. CRIDER will officiate. Interment will be made in the I.O.O.F. cemetery at Rochester.
