Home Inmate Dies Following Severe Burns

Henry Hart Succombs to Shock - Was 87 Years of Age - Funeral Today.  Henry Hart, 87, an inmate of the county home, who suffered painful burns Saturday morning when his clothing became ignited as he came too near the fire in the incinerator at the home, died at Stouder Memorial hospital about 9 o'clock Sunday evening. It is believed that the shock of the burns and his advanced age hastened his death.  Mr. Hart had resided at the home intermittently for the last several years. Since Dec. 17, 1920, he had made his home there practically all the time with the exception of two summers. He was widely known throughout the vicinity. He was born October 12, 1843, near West Milton. He has no immediate relatives surviving.  The funeral services were held at 9:30 o'clock Tuesday morning at the Joseph Irwin funeral home, where the body was taken. Rev. Lester Schlechty, pastor of the Troy Methodist circuit, had charge of the obsequies. The body was at the Irvin funeral home until after the services. Burial was made in Riverside Cemetery.
