Hiram Sterling, a life-long and well known resident of West Hemlock township, was found dead in his rocking chair last evening at six o'clock when his son, Charles , with whom he made his home, went to call him for supper. Life was already extinct.
Mr. Sterling had not been ill to any serious extent and his death came as a great shock. He was aged 75 years and his wife preceded him to the grave two years ago. He is survived by three children: Charles, with whom he made his home; John E., of Colorado Springs, Colorado; Mrs. Lloyd Moore, of Jerseytown; Mrs. Alfred Bastuscheck, of Hazleton; Mrs. Henry Shaffer, of Berwick. Two brothers, Baltis, of near Buckhorn, and Clinton W., of Bloomsburg, also survive him.
Mr. Sterling was one of the best known men in that section and formerly followed farming, living of late years a retired life.
The funeral arrangements have not yet been made.
