Death C. E. Morgan
Popular Young Man Succumbs to Typhoid Fever - Have Not Been Able Yet to Locate His Relatives.
Charles E. Morgan, aged 32 years, died Tuesday night at the St. Joseph hospital. The cause of his death was typhoid fever, with which disease he had been afflicted since July 25. The deceased, who has made his home in Lewiston for the past year, came to this point from Orofino, where he had lived for three or four years. He came west from Indiana and the funeral arrangements will not be made until relatives can be heard from.
Mr. Morgan was a man of high character and during his residence in this section became very popular in a wide circle of friends. He is a member of the Masonic, I. O. O. F. and Foresters lodges. He has recently been employed with the firm of Guernsey & Newton in handling the real estate features of the firm's business.
An examination made yesterday of the personal papers of the deceased failed to disclose definitely the address of any relatives, but several telegrams have been sent to points in Indiana, Ohio and Colorado. He held an insurance policy in the Foresters lodge in the sum of $1,000 in favor of Anna Setler [Senter] of Rocky Ford, Colo. It is believed this lady is his aunt. He had told friends also that a cousin, residing in the Philippines, is teaching school there. The deceased owns a timber claim in the Pierce section; also has a homestead there and property in Arizona and Indiana, the total value of the estate property reaching $10,000 to $12,000.
Mr. Morgan served with the Indiana volunteers in the Philippine war. He was a graduate in the classic course at Valparaiso college of Indiana and also took a course in pharmacy. A number of his college mates are in the city, including Attorney S. O. Tannahill, and the latter is endeavoring to locate the young man's family.
