At the residence of A. B. Lawerance, city of
Oconto, Wis., February 12th, 1880, Mrs. Martha A. Marks, aged 42 years.
We regret that it is our province to record the death of Miss Hattie Leigh daughter of John Leigh Esq. Miss Leigh has been a sufferer for nearly four years. But a sever attack of inflammatory rheumatism, about two years ago, left her with chorea. A year since a second attack was more severe, followed by convulsions. After this last illness, no dangerous results were apprehended until Dr. Allen discovered symptoms of heart disease. When she was taken down with typhoid fever. On Wednesday last Dr. Moriarty held a consultation with him and on Friday Drs. Coleman and Allen consulted. It was the opinion of both Drs. Moriarty and Coleman that the course of treatment was all that could be. Saturday morning Miss Leigh, was decidedly better, but towards night, she grew faint and weak. Dr. Allen was sent for at 4 a.m. but arrived only to find her dead. There is no doubt that the immediate cause of her death was the heart disease spoken of, superinduced by inflammatory rheumatism. She was buried on Thursday at the Protestant burying ground, Rev. Mr. Burdick officiating. The very large assembly of friends present testified more earnestly than words, to the deep sympathy, felt for the bereaved family.

Storm at Peshtigo
The many friends of Mrs. Dr. O’Keef, were sadly shocked on Saturday morning to hear of her sudden demise. She had been in poor health for sometime past but was not supposed to be in any immediate danger. Friday night she suffered considerably and Dr. O’Keef (her husband) was up with her until nearly morning, when she seemed to be so much better that he concluded to lie down for awhile, leaving Mrs. O’Keef, with her niece Miss Johnson. She arose and passed into the kitchen where she shortly fell over upon the floor and died almost instantly. The deceased lady was universally respected, and her unexpected death fills the hearts of her many friends with sorrow. We sympathize sincerely with Dr. O’Keef in his great affliction.
Thomas Stephenson died Thursday morning. He was an old resident of Oconto, having followed the occupation of gardener and wood sawyer here for a long time. He was about 65 years of age.
