DIED. At his residence in Postville, June 6th, 1884, Wm. PATTERSON, in his 80th year. Deceased was born in Forfarshire, Scotland, July 18th, 1804. On coming to this country he became a member of the Congregational church of Beloit, Wis. By industry and thrift he and his mate acquired a compentency and 47 years of wedding harmony is the domestic record of their lives. Eulogy seems vain, what was said of Chas. LAMB might with propriety be said of deceased. O' he was good if ever man was good," to say more would be superfluous. He, for many years, was a respected farmer on Henderson Prairie. He had been ailing for some time. The funeral services were held at his residence on Monday of this week. He was a connection of the RAGAN family by marriage, and leaves a wife to mourn his loss.
Card of thanks. To the many kind friends who extended their aid and sympathy to us in performing the last sad rites in our late bereavement. Mrs. J. PATTERSON, Mrs. J. RAGAN.
