Maquoketa Sentinel, September 11, 1856.
The remains found near Austin Settlement, Sac County, Iowa, have been identified as those of A. W. White, of the firm of Bigelow & White, Sioux City, who was last heard from at Austin, mounted on a fine horse. Three men with their horses tied were afterwards seen near the ravine where the body was found, in earnest consultation.
The Fort Dodge Sentinel supposes them to be three desperadoes from Hardin County and expresses a fervent wish that justice may overtake them. Mr. White was known to have had money with him, which doubtless instigated this mournful tragedy.
