Death of John L. Spring, 1871

John L. Spring, my 4xgreat-grandfather, was born in Massachusetts on 12 February 1794.  He has been the subject of several posts:  Nov. 14, 2011 - his will from Vigo Co, Indiana admitted to Probate 3 January 1872; Nov. 15, 2011 - my known info on John; and Nov. 17, 2011 - Family Group Sheet with both his wives.

Today, on Newspaper Archive, I found several items related to John's death, at age 77.  Originally, it was thought he was a victim of murder. 

Discovered on Christmas morning, died of natural causes.
Misreported John's last name, included a possible motive for murder -which previously was reported in error.
