MOTHER  OF  SIX  IS  FOUND  DEAD
----------
Body of Mrs. Harry Marshall Was Discovered
in Her Bed by Small Son.
----------
Box Found at Side of Bed
With Four Tablets Missing ----
Funeral Tuesday.
----------
          Mrs. Ruth Marshall, age thirty-one, wife of  Harry Marshall, was found dead in her bed at their home, 619 South Miller street, about 8 o'clock Sunday morning.  A physician was called, but death had occurred some time before he was summoned.  County Coroner Thomas H. Cartmel was notified of the death of Mrs. Marshall and plans to conduct an inquest Wednesday night.
          The exact cause of the death will not be determined until the coroner completes his investigation and submits his report.  It was the opinion of the physician that an attack of neuralgia of the heart muscles had resulted in the sudden death of Mrs. Marshall.
          The fact that four headache tablets had been taken from a box beside the bed in which she died constituted the only apparent solution to sudden death.
          One of the six children in the family tried to awaken the at about eight o'clock yesterday morning.  Failing in his efforts, the small boy went to the father, sleeping by the mother's side, and awakened him with the cry, "Daddy, I think mother is dead."
          Coroner Cartmel made an investigation on Sunday morning.  Members of the family opposed the idea of inducting an autopsy to determine the cause of death.  Whether or not the headache tablets had been taken one all at one time or at intervals may never be known.
          Mrs. Marshall was born in Orange township, Rush county, August 21, 1900, daughter of  Mr. and Mrs. Irvin Thompson.  She attended school in Rush and Shelby counties.  For many years she had been a faithful member of the Blue Ridge M. E. church.  Her marriage took place November 12, 1918.  Her husband is the son of  Mr. and Mrs. T. I. Marshall.  Six children, the oldest of whom is only eleven, survive:  Vera Iria,  Mary Kathleen,  Bruce,  Robert,  Glenn,  and  Ralph.  The parents, now living at Blue Ridge, also survive, and a sister,  Mrs. Kathleen Hungerford, of Blue Ridge.
          Funeral services will be held at the home Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, Dr. L. T. Freeland, past or the First M. E. church, officiating.  The body will be placed in the Temple Hill mausoleum, C. F. Fix and Son in charge.

----------
WAS  INJURED  WEEK  AGO
----------
          Elbert N. Marshall, age sixty-nine, well known resident of Shelby county, died Thursday morning at eleven o'clock at his home in Waldron.  His death was caused by a fractured skull.  Mr. Marshall was injured a week ago Monday while at work pitching pumpkins at the plant of the Waldron Canning Co.  He was struck through accident by a fork in the hands of another employe.  At the time it was not believed that he was badly hurt, but later the injury became serious.  Mr. Marshall had been unconscious since Saturday.  He was born in 1856 near Blue Ridge.  Practically all of his life had been spent in Shelby county.  He was a resident of Union township for many years, and at one time served as assessor of that township.  He farmed for many years, and for four years was connected in the hardware trade.  He had been a member of the Christian Union church at Ray's Crossing, but after moving to Waldron transferred his membership to the Waldron M. E. church.  He was a member of the Odd Fellows lodge at Blue Ridge, and the Modern Woodmen at Ray's Crossing.  Mr. Marshall leaves his widow; one daughter, Mrs. Mary Benning, of St. Paul; three sons, Edmund, of Muncie;  Clarence, of Shelbyville and  Stanley, at home; two step-daughters, and two brothers, Marion Marshall, of Waldron, and  John Marshall, of Indianapolis.  Funeral arrangements will be announced later by Carmony Brothers.  Funeral services will be held Saturday afternoon at one-thirty o'clock at the Waldron M.E. church.  Interment will be made in Forest Hill Cemetery, Carmony Brothers in charge.
