The Adams Centinel, November 17, 1821.

Another Revolutionary Hero Gone!

DIED---at Littles-Town, on Saturday morning the 27th ult. Mr. MICHAEL WILL, at the advanced age of 85 years.

In the early part of his life, in the struggle with Great-Britain for our Independence, he joined the army, and stood the hard fought battles of his country. At the battle of Brandywine, he received a severe wound---the effects of which he carried to the grave.

Many attended the following day, to pay the last tribute of respect to their departed favourite. His remains were interred in Christ's Church burial ground, attended by the Rev. J. B. Wiesting, who delivered an appropriate discourse from 1st Kings, xix, and part of the 4th verse---"It is enough now, O Lord, take away my life, for I am not better than my fathers."
