He Sleeps. Samuel Wiles died at the residence of his father -in-law, April 3, 1893 at 5:30 p.m. He was born in West Lebanon April 15, 1861, and was 32 years of age at the time of his demise. Mr. Wiles has suffered about two years from consumption. He has left a wife and two children and many friends to mourn his loss He was laid in the Slaughter Cemetery to rest. Passed her 72nd Milestone. mrs. Lucinda Fulton of Mound Township was seventy two years old last Saturday and the even was celebrated in the usual old fashioned way at her residence by her children, grandchildren and her many friends, there being fifty persons present, and partook of a splendid dinner. Mrs. Fulton was born in the state of Ohio and emigrated to Madison County, Indiana when but six months old and in 1839 married Franklin Fulton in said county and in 1851 moved to Howard County in said county to the present time, with the exception of two years that she lived in Marion County, Missouri. Mrs. Fulton has eight children living and seven that have crossed over Jordan. Her husband and three sons were in the great struggle for freedom the eldest son being killed at Kennesaw Mountain, the other two sons living to celebrate the event above mentioned. Her husband died in the year 1881. Mrs. Fulton has forty-eight grandchildren and twelve great crandchildren and is in good health and appears not more than forty-five or fifty years of age, and can do a good day's work yet. She has three daughters living in Danville, Ill. who were all present. Mrs. Fulton received very many nice presents, which she praises very highly and will keep during life. After dinner the afternoon was spent in a friendly chat and events, which occurred years ago, were called to memory and all spent a pleasant day that will never be forgotten by those present. Mrs. Henry Albert of Johnsonville died after a brief illness of lung fever terminating in typhoid fever. We learn with sorrow since we commenced writing that Mr. Charles Dawson died last night. Mr. Dawson was born and spent his life in this township (Medina). He was an enterprising citizen; always ready to help in any good work, full of sympathy for the suffering, ready to help the needy, a man whose counsel was good, one who loved peace in the neighbothood and quiet at home. He will be greatly missed by many. We extend our sympathies to his wife, who is the only member of his family to mourn his death.
