Death of An Old Citizen
Rev. Thompson Bird, one of our oldest citizens and one who has been identified with the ministerial labors of the Presbyterian Church of this city since the first settlement of the place, departed this life at 5 o'clock last evening.
Mr. Bird has been confined to his house by severe illness for more than a year, and the announcement of his death, though not unexpected, will be received with sorrow by a huge majority of our citizens to whom he has been endeared by a long and profitable acquaintance.
The funeral will take place at one o'clock tomorrow afternoon, and all friends of the family are invited to attend without further notice.
