A telegram announcing the death of Mrs. Caroline Cunningham at Canton, Ohio, was received here yesterday. The deceased was nearly ninety-four years of age at the time of her death, and will be remembered as the estimable lady, who for many years made her home in this city with with her daughter, Mrs. J.M. Peters, and family. She was also the mother of O.W. Cunningham, of Goshen.
