    • FATAL SUNSTROKE
      Henry Oldenburg of West Galena, came to his death suddenly last Friday, from effects of the extreme heat. He was a brother of Christopher and John Oldenburg, of the same neighborhood. He came to this country last October from Germany and moved into Jake Vanderveddah's Four Mile House on the Turnpike. On Friday he was working on the farm for his brother, John, and being partially overcome by heat, he went to his own house and his daughter gave him some coffee. After drinking, he remarked that he felt better and started for the field. He had only got outside the door, when he sank down, and expired. The funeral took place on saturday, and the remains were deposited in Greenwood Cemetery. Deceased was 41 years of age. He was a widower, and leaves one daughter 16 years of age. He died July 8, 1881.
