|Death: ||Mar. 7, 1892|
On last Monday afternoon, March 7th, 1892, Green Twp. lost one of its most respected citizens, in the death of Jacob L. Lydick, which was sad, sudden and unexpected to his family and immediate friends.
He had been in delicate health for the past year, but had not been seriously ill. About a week ago, he complained of a severe pain in his arm. On the day of his death, he was unusually well, but after eating a hearty dinner he complained of pains in his head and about two o'clock the pains became more severe and death soon relieved him, the immediate cause of his death apoplexy.
Mr. Lydick was the only son of Mr. Samuel Lydick, an early settler of Green Twp. The deceased was a respected citizen and one in whom the neighborhood placed the utmost confidence. During his lifetime, he has held many responsible offices in the township. He was ruling elder in the Presbyterian Church at Taylorsville for many years. Mr. Lydick married a sister of Dr. Anderson of this place. His remains were interred in the graveyard at Taylorsville today, Wednesday.
