Horace M. Althouse, 427 First Avenue, Parkesburg, passed away at 8:30 o’clock this morning, in the Coatesville Hospital, aged 36 years. He had been employed at the Lukens Steel Plant.
Mr. Althouse called at the office of Dr. J. A. Perkins, on Monday evening, complaining of a pain in his side. Indications pointed to appendicitis, and he was sent to the hospital, where further examination failed to disclose the appendix as the cause of the trouble, and it was thought that he may have sustained an internal injury. An investigation is being made by Deputy Coroner H. E. Williams, Jr.
Mr. Althouse is survived by his wife, who was formerly Miss Sarah MacFarland, and two children, Judith, 8 , and Charlotte, 3.
His father, George Althouse, of West Sadsbury, also survives, and there are two brothers, Harvey, of Baltimore, and Roy, of Detroit, Mich., and two sisters, Sarah and Olive.
