SUDDEN DEATH - An old and well-known resident of Cumberland, Guernsey County, by the name of Elisha Bartlett, arose early last Friday morning and began to kindle a fire in the cook-stove; while performing the duty he remarked to his aged companion that he was feeling very badly; he had no more that uttered these words when he fell upon the floor a dead man. Physicians were summoned, but to no purpose. Mr. Bartlett owned a residence in Cumberland, and a farm in Noble County. He was about 70 years old.
(from "Noble County Republican," Nov. 2, 1882)

On last Friday morning, Mr. Elisha Bartlett, of Cumberland, got up to his usual health, went to the kitchen and built a fire preparatory for breakfast, when his wife heard a fall in the room. She at once ran and found him lying on the floor in a dying condition, in fact, he only breathed a few times after she got to him. His funeral took place on Saturday and was largely attended by friends and neighbors. Mr. Bartlett was highly respected by all with whom he came in contact. He leaves a wife in comfortable circumstances.
(from "Citizen's Press, Nov. 9, 1882)

"The funeral of last Saturday was very largely attended, not only on account of marked respect to Mr. Elisha Bartlett, but on account of the suddenness of his demise. He got up about 5 o'clock Friday morning, stirred up the fires, went out but soon returned, and a few moments after his wife heard him fall. She hastened to him and found him in a dying condition. A physician was sent for, but life was extinct. Cause, heart disease, most likely, as he has had some premonitions in that direction during the last year.
(from "Cambridge Jeffersonian, Nov. 2, 1882)
