DIED. On Saturday morning January 12, 1856, COL. AARON CHAMBETLAIN, aged 68 years 8 months. Mr. Chamberlain was born in New Jersey. At the age of 5 years he became a citizen of Union County, Pa, and lived there many years a very useful and highly respected Citizen. In 1812 he marched, as a Lieutenant in command of a Volunteer Company, to "Black Rock," and in that war rendered himself "worthy of double honors," and as a merit of his bravery, upon his return was elected Colonel. In 1840 he emigrated to this County, and in 1843 was elected County Surveyor for the County of Stephenson, Ills., and served 4 years in that capasity. He was one of the early pioneers of this County and has always maintained a high degree of influence and respectability, and was an active, honest, and useful man, until some 2 years ago, was taken with a Paralytic stroke, since that time he has been greatly afflicted and suffered much, but bore all his trials and sufferings with exemplary Patience, seeing a Fathers hand in them all. Death to him was not an unexpected, nor an unwelcome messenger, for his end was Peace. Full of years, in a good old age, he has been gathered to the "Heavenly Gardner" as a shock of Corn, fully ripe, is gathered in its season. The memory of the just is blessed.

Freeport Sentinal, 15 Jan 1856.
