DEATHS AND FUNERALS

-Last evening Coroner SHARPE held an inquest at Maier's undertaking rooms in the case of Charles PECK, who was drowned in the canal Sunday morning. A verdict was given to the effect that PECK was drowned while engaged in a struggle, and no blame was attached to anybody.

Could this mean that Samuel Peck didn't die by drowning in the Erie canal or does it mean that the actor's grandfather was Charles and not Samuel...??
