Marion county, and died suddenly in

April, 1870, in the 63d year of his age.

mysterious one, the cause of which is
known only to the great “I Am.” With
in a few hoars of his death he was in the
vigor of manhood, but death suddenly

claimed him as his own. Though he was
not permitted by Providence to breathe
his last in the peaceful abode of his own

citizen. His loss is a great calamity, not
