 A Suspicious Death.

In the upper end of the county a house has been occupied by some negro women of questionable character.  One of them, Savannah Barron, died rather suddenly and under suspicious circumstances Thursday night, she having not complained up to the time of her death.  It seems that the woman was found lying in the middle of her room dead the next morning by the other inmates of the house.  Coroner John Rowland was notified, and after an investigation of nearly two days the jury returned a verdict of death caused by peritonitis.
