One More Revolutionary Hero. Des Moines, Jan. 1.—Still one more hero of the revolution has been found resting in Iowa soil. Curator Aldrich of the state historical department received information that Martin Linn, who was buried in a cemetery at Tipton, was a soldier of the revolution and fought under Washington, and was with the army at Valley Forge. He died in 1863 at the age of 101 years, and his widow drew a pension for several years. This makes the seventh revolutionary soldier burled in Iowa.
