DIED - AN OLD SETTLER GONE -
Mrs. Smith, consort of John Smith, died on Monday last, at the old homestead, six miles south of the city, at the advanced age of 79 years. Mr. Smith is one of the oldest settlers in this county, coming here with his wife, now deceased, among the very first. The venerable couple continued in married life for fifty-eight years, and now among the last days of the winter of their lives, death finally comes and severs the connection, by taking the aged wife. For about forty-five years have they lived in this county, and watched its progress from the earliest days to the present state of prosperity.
