Death Notices of Indianapolis Doctors (1862)

These death notices for 3 Indianapolis doctors were found in Transactions of the State Medical Society of Indiana, at a called session, held in the city of Indianapolis, Nov. 18 and 19, 1862 (Indianapolis: Elder, Harkness & Bingham, 1862):

On the 11th of August, 1861, at his residence, in Indianapolis, of Bilious Fever, Charles Parry, M.D., in the 47th year of his age.

Dr. Parry had been actively engaged in the practice of his profession for more than a quarter of a century, and had been a member of the State Medical Society since its organization.

A good citizen, a superior physician, a distinguished surgeon – his death was a public loss.

On Wednesday, September 10th, 1862, of Pneumonia, Livingston Dunlap, M.D., aged 63 years.

Dr. Dunlap was a resident of Indianapolis for over forty years, was the first President of the Indiana State Medical Society, and at the time of his death was, no doubt, the oldest practitioner of medicine in the State.

He was a genial gentleman, a devoted friend, an accomplished physician, an honest man.

On the steamer John Roe, at Crump’s Landing, Tennessee River, on the 19th of March last, of Typhoid Pneumonia, Clay Brown, M.D., Assistant Surgeon 11th Regiment Indiana Volunteers, aged 36 years.
