Lettie Fisher
Coroner G. L. TAYLOR was called to Ina Saturday morning, where he 
held an inquest in the death of Mrs. Lettie FISHER, found dead in 
her bed about 6:00 a.m. of that day. After hearing the evidence 
of three persons, the husband, a nephew and a neighbor, the jury 
returned a verdict of death of neuralgia of the heart. Mrs. FISHER 
was the wife of S. E. FISHER. Mrs. FISHER was 62 years old.  
She was lying on her side when found, and death apparently had been 
without much pain.

Russell McBRIDE, a nephew, who discovered Mrs. FISHER dead, testified 
that he ate breakfast about 5:30 a.m., after which he visited the home 
of his uncle, S. E. FISHER.  Looking in the window he saw Mrs. FISHER 
lying on her side, and her color impressed him as being unnatural.  
He looked to see if she was breathing, then stepped on the porch and 
asked Mr. FISHER what he was doing, and he said gathering apples. A 
further look convinced Mr. McBRIDE that Mrs. FISHER was dead, so with 
his uncle, they entered the house and found that such was the case.

Mrs. W. T. FRASURE, a neighbor, was then notified. The husband testified 
that about six months ago Mrs. FISHER had been treated for heart trouble, 
but had been well since that time. Mrs. FRASURE testified that she rubbed 
Mrs. FISHER and raised her arms, but life was extinct
