Victim of Typhoid Fever

March 22, 1917

Rev. Herman C. Fultz, of Ellicot City, the Seond to Die Since the Outbreak

The outbreak of typhoid fever at Ellicott City still remains unchecked and so far twenty-six cases have been recorded, with two deaths, the latest victim being the Rev. Herman C. Fultz, pastor of the First English Lutheran Church, of that place, his death taking place at the Hannemann Hospital, Baltimore, on Tuesday.

Rev. Mr. Fultz was stricken three weeks ago with typhoid, the cause of which is supposed to have been due to the use of water coming from the reservoir.

Rev. Mr. Fultz was born in Germany. When two years old he was brought to this country by his parents, both of whom are now dead. He was graduated from the Lutheran Seminary at Gettysburg, Pa. His first charge was at St. Mary’s Lutheran Church, Silver Run, Carroll County, where he remained nine years. After leaving there he held charges in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and at St. John’s Church Washington.

He had been located at Ellicott City three years. His son, Miles E. Fultz, is a wireless operator on the American steamer Doughrs, which left New York about a month ago loaded with contraband of war for the Allies, bound for Genoa, Italy.

Rev. Mr. Fultz leaves his widow and one daughter, Mrs. Alma Wiegand.
