--News has been received here of the death at his home at Brookfield Junction, Wisconsin, of W. Riley Blodgett, aged eighty-nine years. Mr. Blodgett had been feeble for a number of years. He was born in Rushville, N. Y., in 1821, and was educated in the public schools and later taught for two years in New London, Ohio. In 1841 he went to Brookfield and taught for two years in the district schools. He then purchased a quarter section of land, now considered the ideal farm of the town of Brookfield, which he resided upon until seven years ago when he removed to Brookfield village. Mr. Blodgett was married to Miss Adeline L. Wadsworth, daughter of Israel and Hannah Wadsworth, a native of Yates County, N. Y. She died in 1852 and in 1855 Mr. Blodgett wedded Miss Zilphia L. Wadsworth, a cousin of his first wife. Besides his wife he is survived by one son, William W. Blodgett, of Brookfield.
