Sad Deaths.

Tis not often that we chronicle deaths so sudden and impressive as those of Captain Joseph H. Kite and his wife Mrs Sarah A. Kite. About two weeks ago both were sezied [sic] with typhoid fever at their residence, near Elkton, in Rockingham, and though receiving every attention that medical skill and kind relatives and friends could bestow, they both died, Capt. Kite on Saturday, the 6th; and Mrs. Kite on the following Wednesday. Capt. Kite was sixty-five years old and his wife was a few years his junior. He was one of the most intelligent gentleman in the county, and had been Postmaster at Elkton during Mr. Cleveland's administration. Mrs. Kite was a sister of Dr. S. P. H. and J. G. H. Miller, of Elkton, aud a descendant of Adam Miller, one of the first settlers upon the Shenandoah river. Indeed, we believe he was the first settler on the Shenandoah near Elkton after the expedition of Gov. Spottwood [sic] across the Blue Ridge.
