HEIR TO A FORTUNE, VIRGINIAN DROPS DEAD
[Special to The Times-Dispatch]
Denver, November 8. - T. H. Orton, a
hotel man from St. Charles, Va., and
heir to a fortune in Denver Real es-
tate, dropped dead in his room today
of heart trouble
Orton came to Denver three months
ago to look after the large estate of
his mother, Mrs. Sarah A. Bissell, who
was declared mentally unsound and
unable to look after her affairs. She
was sent to the Molkery[sic] Sanatorium
where she is at present.
Orton and his sister, Mrs. Nannie[sic]
Van Rensselaer, of Mayland[sic], Mass.,
were the only children and heirs of
Mrs. Bissell, whose husband, Harry
Bissell, was one of the large real es-
tate owners of Denver. Orton was
walking through the hallway near his
room, when he fell and began gasping
for breath. A servant ran to a near-
by drug store and called the prescrip-
tion clerk, but they were unable to
aid him, and he died immediately.
