Prouty of Halifax who was seriously injured by a bull, which at tacked and gored him in the abdomen, in his barn May 4, died Sunday morn ing aged i'2 years. He was apparently recovering from his injuries but a 1 heart difficulty of several years' stand ing, aggavated by his injuries, result led fatally. Nothing seemed unusual in j his case until about 2 o'clock Sunday j morning when he complained of a pe jculiar sensation about the heart and that he could not breathe. Assistance I was summoned but with the words "1 im going." he soon breathed his last. ! Almon Prouty was the son of Plumnier and Ellen Wilcox Prouty, born in Hal ifax on what is known as the Wilcox I place March -20. ltMO, his whole life being spent in the town. He was unit ; ed in marriage March 20, 188,'i, to Min i nie Alice, dauehter of benjamin Clark of Halifax. Two children, a son Har old, and a daughter Clara were born to jtbem. The funeral was held at his late home Tuesday at 11 o'clock, Kev. Mr. Shaw of Marlboro officiating. A quar i tet consisting of F. E. Bennett, Mrs. : Morse, Mr. Thomas and Mrs. Potter I with Mr. Potter at the organ, rendered ! three appropriate selections. The num ber of relatives and frieuds present showed the esteem in which the de ceased was held. His loss is deeply felt by his family, especially by his aged father and mother as he was an only child, and also by the community in which he lived. The burial was at Guilford Centre. Mr. Prouty was an industrious man, a good father, son and husband and those whom his sad death has bereaved have the sympathy of all. Mrs. Sibyl Dewey. In the death of the lata Mrs. Sibyl Dewey, at the ripe age of 91) years, 8 months and VI dnvs. there passed away the oldest inhabitant of the town of Dunimerstou. Sibyl Stoddard Dewey was the youngest of six children and was born September 3, 1811, on what has been known for many years as the "Stoddard farm" on Dummorston Hill, in a log house built by her father. She was the daughter of Samuel Stod dard and Zerviab Richmond, his wife, and great granddaughter of David Stoddard of Chesterfield, N. H. , a rev olutionary patriot and Joanna Kings lev, his wife. She was also granddaugh ter of Ephraim Richmond, likewise a patriot of the revolution and Anna Dean, his wife. She married, March 20, Kll, Abram Dewey, who it is claimed, was the cousin of Admiral Dewev's father. Two children were horn to them, one dying at birth. Ihe other. Julia Ann. was born May 1812, and married Steven U. Reed, Oc tober 18, 18(10. She died May 21, 18i.. Mrs. Dewey leaves three granddaugh ters and four greatgrandchildren. She was the voungest sister of the late Levi Stoddard of the old Dummerston Hill farm, and an aunt of the late Horace K. Stoddard. She was also an aunt of Alonzo Dean Stoddard of Hastings, Xeb. , and of Ephraim Samuel Stod dard of New Orleans. La., both of whom are veterans of the civil war. Que of her nephews, Corporal Francis Fisher, fell on the parapet at Vicks burg during the civil war while noldy defending his country's flag. Mrs. Sibyl Stoddard Dewey was a true hearted, noble Christian woman, hav ing been u devoted member of the bap tist church for more than 75 years. She was a genuine type of the grand old Puritan stock from which she proudly descended, one of the distin guishing features of which was its su perb manhood and remarkable longe vity. The family records show that her mother. Zerviali Richmond Stoddard, reached the ripe age of 92, and that at the age of 90 she had never had a phy sician called to attend her. Mrs. Dewev's grandmother, Anna Dean Richmond,' also reached an uncommon age, dving at 91 years and 8 months. Mrs. Dewey had always been remark ably healthy and strong till her last illness, which dated only a .couple of months before she died. She was lov ingly and tenderly cared for by her daughter, Mrs. J. P. O'Brien. Her death was but the going out of a great light that has burned to its extremity, or like the ripened fruit that falls at maturity. NEWFANE. and Vote for Clement delegates and adv.
