He was afflicted with paralysis with which he was stricken about a year ago. He was by no means rendered helpless and was walking around in his ward hardly an hour
before he died. His sudden death was a great shock to his relatives and many friends by all of whom he was held in high regard. He was taken ill at his home east of the City some time ago and was taken to the Home hospital.

The family moved to Danville on May 13, 1865, and occupied the property at the southwest corner of Franklin and north Streets. About twenty years ago the family moved to a small farm east of the City on the Covington Road. He had a tin shop near his home and also in this City and made daily trips to Danville, Mr. Brant married his second wife in this City thirty-two years ago.
