OBITUARY - Scarcely had this neighborhood ceased lamenting the sudden and unexpected death of Miss Hannah Thompson by the lightning stroke than another in the family is visited by the angel of death, and one of the inmates summoned to the world of spirits. On the 4th of October Mr. Jas. Cornfield's daughter, Fanny, was called to exchange time for eternity. A little over a year before her death, she had an attack of inflammatory rheumatism form which she never fully recovered. All that kind hearts could suggest and willing hands could do was done to remove the disease, but of no avail. Fanny possessed a quiet, genial disposition to all, and was beloved by the young people; and being brought up under the care of a godly mother, was doubtless early impressed with the reality there is in the religion of Jesus. She passed away peacefully from the toils and trials of earth to enjoy the rest of Heaven. How admonitory to the young people of the neighborhood to be also ready, "for in such an hour as they know not, the Son of Man cometh."

Rev. Thos. Grandy
