—John Rice, one of the old and respected farmers of Lansing township, got up about 2 o’clock on the morning of the 8th to get a drink of water, apparently in his usual health, but on retiring to bed complained a little and asked his wife to give him some medicine but before she could he was a corpse. Deceased was aged about 79. —Lansing Journal.
Transcriber’s Note: Find a Grave shows he was born March 31, 1818 and died March 4, 1898.(This does not agree with the above date.) He is buried in Gethsemane Cemetery.
