Peter Stohry Passed Away
At Home East of City --
Funeral Friday.
(From Wednesday's Daily.)
          Peter Stohry,  one of Shelby county's prominent farmers and stockmen, died at 9:30 o'clock this morning of a complication of diseases at his home two miles east of this city.  He had been suffering since last fall and recently fell a victim of paralysis.  He had not been able to leave his bed for the past three weeks.  Mr. Stohry was a native of Germany and would have been sixty-four years old the twenty-sixth of next July.
          All of his relatives, except those of his immediate family, live in Germany.  None of them came here but him and one of his brothers and the latter died soon after reaching here.
          When Mr. Stohry reached Shelbyville from Germany at the age of sixteen years he had just fifty-five cents.  He found a friend in the late  Joseph Zeigler,  who was then living on a farm west of this city, but was soon able to look out for himself.  He became in the course of time the owner of a fine farm and a most comfortable home east of this city, and had many friends who knew him as a man of real worth.
          His wife and two children, living in the come community, survive him.  The children are  Will  and  Mrs. Jacob Coers.
          The funeral services will be held at the house at one o'clock Friday afternoon, the Rev. Samuel Caldemeyer officiating, and the interment will be made in Forest Hill cemetery in charge of Stewart & Fix.  No flowers.
