An Eatontown Man Dies in a Store

Eleazer B. Richardson of South Eatontown dropped dead in W. E. Morris’s grocery store at Eatontown on Monday afternoon. Mr. Richarsdon had been doing some odd jobs around the store for Mr. Morris and he had just returned from Mr. Morris’s stables, where he had put up the horse used on the delivery wagon. Mr. Richardson had advanced a few steps into the store, when he suddenly threw up his hands and pitched headlong to the floor with a groan. Dr. W. U. Kutrz was sent for, but Mr. Richardson was dead before he arrived. The body was removed to Charles Breese’s undertaking shop across the street. Coroner John Flock of Long Branch arrived shortly afterward. He viewed the remains and ordered a autopsy, which was performed the same night by Dr. Shaw of Long Branch. Dr. Shaw said that death was caused by apoplexy. Mr. Richardson was 52 years old and was a hard working man. A widow, four grown sons and two smaller children survive him. His life was insured for $150. The funeral was held this afternoon at half-past two o’clock at the South Eatontown Methodist church. The service was conducted by Rev. Samuel Biddle. The body was buried at White Ridge cemetery.
