In the Fort Wayne Daily Gazette from Fort Wayne Indiana 9 April 1866 is an article about Joseph Thurber, son of Alonzo B. Thurber of LaPorte Co. Indiana. It tells of Thurber's escape from an attempted murder of 6 soldiers who were ambushed in Tennessee in Jan 1865. The five others were killed. In a twist of fate, a year later Thurber met up with one of the killers in a business setting. This resulted in the arrest of the murderer. I found an image on line, but a portion along the margin of one paragraph is missing. If anyone has access to this old newspaper, I'd be happy to pay any copying and mailing costs associated with obtaining a copy of the article.
