Veteran of the American Revolution

DIED - In this town [Amherst NH], 29th inst., Mr. Andrew Leavitt, aged 94. As a shock of corn fully ripe, he has been gathered to the grave, the place for all the living. Mr. L. was another, and nearly the last of the generation which has gone before us, of the elderly residents of this place, - there are but a few more left. Mr. Leavitt was a respected master carpenter in his day, and the most of the houses built in this village of thirty years standing, are the workmanship of his hands. He was the oldest member of the church in this place, and as a wise master-builder, we trust he laid a good foundation for future repose, in a "house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens;" having early imbibed and professed the christian faith in the atoning blood of an Almighty Savior. He lived an honest, industrious life, and was respected by all who knew him. He has left a circle of very numerous descendants, to the third and fourth generation - among them the "Hutchinson Family," of vocal songsters - all of whom venerate his memory. [The Farmers' Cabinet, 3 Sep 1846, page 3]
