Death of William R. Fielding.
William R. Fielding was known to almost every resident of Kokomo. He was a colored man, a barber by occupation, and had been a resident of the city for nearly two scores of years. Bill Fielding is dead.
On Tuesday morning at 2 o’clock, after two months of indescribable suffering with dropsical trouble, the malady reached his heart. It was but a touch--and then came death. Kind hands lifted the laboring soul as high as Heaven.
William R. Fielding was born at Zanesville, Ohio, 56 years ago. He was married and was the father of two boys--Clarence and Addie, aged respectively 19 and 10 years. His wife survives him.
He died at the residence of J. A. Coleman on Tuesday morning as above indicated and was taken on the same day to Zanesville (Ohio) for burial
