Mr. Jessie Henderson died at the old homestead near town yesterday, from the diseases consequent to old age. Mr. Henderson was born in Monongalia county, Va., now West Virginia, on the third day of March 1813, and would therefore have been 85 years of age on the third day of next month. He married Amanda Fox of that county, and their mar ried life extended over a period of over 62 years. There was born un to them fourteen children, of whom eight together with his aged widow, survive him. He with his family came to this county in the year 1850 and settled on the old homestead, where he continued to live, with the excep tions of about three years in Wood county, to his death. Mr. Hender son was an honorable citizen and a Christian man. He was a member of the Christian church and followed its doctrine as near the letter as man could.
