Death of Amos Tunison

On Saturday morning last, soon after breakfast, Amos Tunison, a well known citizen of West Salem, was found by members of his family, in his barn in an apparently, insensible condition.  He had fed his horses, and partially cleaned out the stables, and had evidently suddenly fallen down where he was found.  He was removed to the house and after vigorous rubbing, it became evident that he was not yet dead, and a physician was hurriedly sent for and was with the patient as soon as practicable, but found him in such a condition as to offer no hope to his friends!  He lingered till the evening of the same day and died.  The attack which so suddenly carried him off was evidently something in the nature of paralysis.  Deceased was a son of the late James Tunison, and was born on the old Tunison farm, half a mile north of Porter's, or more recently, Loutzenhiser's Corners.  He was about 54 years of age.  He leaves behind a wife and four sons.  The eldest, a son by his first wife, resides in Crawford County.  The family was all present at the funeral.  Rev. Dr. Kunkelman conducted the funeral services.
