Death of Dr. Dorastus Peck.
It becomes our painful duty to chronicle the death of Dr. DORASTUS PECK, long a citizen of Ironton. His sickness was of long duration and caused him much severe pain and suffering, which he bore with becoming fortitude and resignation. He died on Thursday, the 18th inst., of disease of the lungs in the 65th year of his age, and ws buried with Masonic honors, Friday, the 19th inst., in the neat and quiet cemetery belonging to that order, and situated just east of the city. There let him calmly and peacefully rest until the bonds of death shall be broken and the victims of that King of terrors shall arise to new life, liberty and light.
Peck, Dr. Dorastus
