Richard H. Brooks

The deceased was called suddenly to his last account, being the victim of a paralytic stroke on Saturday morning from the effect of which he died on Sunday night. Mr. Brooks arose as usual early Saturday morning and went to his barn with a lantern to feed his horse. Sometime afterwards Mrs. Brooks called to him but receiving no answer she went to the barn and found him lying on the floor with the overturned lantern by his side and the flames threatening to set fire to the place. He never rallied or regained consciousness but died about 2 o'clock Monday morning. He had been a resident of Madoc for many years and leaves a widow and two sons, Wm H. in this village, and Anson in New York state.
