The Clinton Daily Herald Friday March 31, 1882 Found Dead in Bed A man named Charles Bates, who has been an invalid for several years, a victim of consumption, was found dead in bed at the Centennial House, corner of Third street and Tenth avenue, this morning, his spirit having taken its flight so quietly during the night as not to disturb his bedfellow, Mr. Patrick McGilley. The latter did not even discover the situation on arising, but proceeded down stairs, the fact of Mr. Bates' death being learned later by some of the family. Mr. Bates lost his wife-who was a sister of Mrs. John Foley- several years ago and had been slowly declining in health, being unable to work for a long time past. He was around as usual yesterday and visited Dr. Reynolds at the latter's office about two o'clock, being then informed that he had probably not long to live - an opinion he had himself held since Christmas. Deceased about about 35 years of age, and had lived for a long time with Mr. Foley at the Centennial. Coronor Lukens was notified of the death, visited Mr. Foley's, but decided there was no necessity for an inquest.
