In 1913, a partial identification of the man whose remains were found early in the week in the woods near Sinclairville, was made by S.E. Leisher of Greenville, Pa., who came to Jamestown to investigate following the publication of the story of the finding of the body, published in the local and the Greenville papers. Leisher, after conferring with Coroner Illston, told him that he was very sure that the dead man was Henry Stoyer of New Hamburg, Pa., a small village near Greenville. Stoyer was a patent attorney and left home in May, ostensibly to go to Pittsburgh on business. He had not been seen or heard of by family or friends since. Stoyer was about 60 years old and wore a beard like that of the dead man. Leisher looked over the effects found with the body and would communicate further with the wife and family of the missing man.
