|GRIFFITH. Died, on Saturday last, at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Sarah Davis, in the West ward, Mr. JOHN GRIFFITH, aged 83 years. |
The deceased was a native of Wales, and when a young man, and immediately after his marriage, he emigrated to this country and settled in the then wilderness about five miles north of this place. By his hard labor and patient industry he eventually saw himself the owner of one of the best and most productive farms in the neighborhood. He resided on said farm until a few years ago, when he removed to this place and made his home with his daughter. He was an honest, upright man, and a most excellent citizen, living at all times at peace with the world, and richly deserving, as he pre-eminently enjoyed, the respect and confidence of all who knew him. His remains were interred in Lloyd's cemetery on Tuesday afternoon, followed to their last resting-place by a large concourse of relatives and friends. Peace to his ashes.
