  • Notes 
    • Unknown paper -
      Reuben Salisbury, Jr
      Mr. Reuben Salisbury, familiarly known as "Deacon Reuben," died suddenly at his residence, at Lacona, on Tuesday. He had been as well as usual during the day, and was engaged in doing some out door work about his mill in the afternoon. About four o'clock, a person called at the mill to see him. On searching for him he was found back of the building lying on the ground, apparently in a fit. He was carried into the house, and although conscious and seemingly in possession of all the faculties of the mind, his physical strength rapidly gave way, and in about two hours he calmly breathed his last.
      Mr. Salisbury was born in Vermont in the year 1800, and was consequently seventy four years of age. he came to this town at the age of twenty two, where he has since resided, with the exception of two or three years spent in Virginia, and two years in the town of Ellisburg. He was a miller by trade, and was still actively engaged in business at the time of his death. He had been a consistent member of the Baptist Church for over fifty years, and for a good share of the time deacon. Though somewhat excentric (sic) in his manner, he was regarded as a man of strict integrity and of vital piety. His companion died less than a year ago, and he has often been heard to speak of his loneliness, and of his desire to depart and be with Christ, and with the loved ones gone before.
      The funeral took place at the Baptist Church on Thursday. Rev. R. H. Spafford preaching the sermon.
