"DIES SUDDENLY WHILE EATING HIS DINNER
Joseph Lehman, Sr., Was In Apparent Good Health - Died Before Doctor Arrived
(Special to The Gazette)
HALLAM, Oct 10 - Apoplexy caused the sudden death of Joseph Lehman this forenoon at 11:30 o'clock, whil seated at the dinner table at the home of his son, Joseph Lehman, Jr., in Springettsbury township, with whom he resided. Mr. Lehman was 82 years old and during the forenoon was in apparent good health. He expired before medical assistance could be summoned.
Seated with him at the table were the members of his son's family, and Levi Druck and Wesley Lindsey. The latter two were engaged in laying a cement walk at the Lehman home. While in the act of swallowing a monthful of the white meat of a chicken that formed a portion of the meal, Mr. Lehman suddenly collapsed, and those seated at the table thought he had choked. Efforts were made to relieve him but without avail. He gradually lapsed into unconsciousness and expired within a short time after the attack. Medical assistance was called in but the man was pronounced dead. Coroner Pius R. Jones was summoned and pronounced death due to a stroke of apoplexy.
Mr. Lehman is a native of Springettsbury township, and resided in the vicinity his entire life.
