We regret to learn of the death of Abraham Simeon Deckerwell, a man well known here. He was drowned at St. Louis a few days ago, while crossing the river in a skiff to go to French Town.
The deceased was a brother of John Deckerwell, of this city. He left here about six weeks ago. He was one of the oldest residents of our county, having settled in Lafayette township many years ago.
He was born in Combremont-le-Grand Canton in Switzerland, in March 1818. He sold out his property here some time ago and is supposed to have had a considerable amount of money with him when he was drowned.
