DETCHON, D.E. - burglarized -- Source: Crawfordsville Weekly Journal, 9 July 1892 --Burglars made quite a little haul at the residence of Dr. E. Detchon the other night. The nurse of S. G. Detchon and wife had retired with the hired girl leaving the window up and the light burning In the middle of the night the hired girl awoke just in time to see a man running down the roof and sliding easily off. She at once aroused her companion and an investigation disclosed the fact that the bureau drawer had been opened and a pocket book containing $34 belonging to the nurse girl taken It was a severe blow to her as it constituted her savings for several months.
