Death Of Joseph Rixton
An Aged And Respected Resident Of Barryville Dies Very Suddenly
Joseph Rixton, an aged German resident of Barryville, N.Y., died very suddenly Monday morning. George Geisenheimer of this village had just arrived at Mr. Rixton's, and he and the family were eating breakfast, of which Mr. Rixton partook heartily. He was swallowing the last of the second cup of coffee when he suddenly placed his hands against his breast, his face becoming flushed, and he seemed in great pain. He was laid upon the sofa and a physician sent for, but death ensued within half an hour after the attack. The funeral will take place tomorrow at 11 o'clock.
Mr. Rixton had long resided in Barryville, where he carried on a bakery and saloon, and had accumulated considerable property. He was a good citizen, and his death will be universally regretted. He was aged about 55 years. He leaves a wife and seven children, the eldest, William, being aged about 26 years, and the youngest about seven.

The Death Of Mr. Rixton
Barryville, N.Y., March 24-Our community was greatly shocked on Monday morning last to hear of the sudden and unexpected death of Mr. Joseph Rixton one of our oldest and most respected citizens. He went to Shohola in the morning to meet Mr. George Geisenheimer of Port Jervis. He returned home, and after eating his breakfast complained to his family of not feeling well, whereupon a physician was summoned, but arrived too late to be of any avail, as he was past medical aid. He expired at 11:30 a.m., not more than one half hour after he was first taken, from the effects of neuralgia of the heart.
The deceased was a good citizen and a kind father. He leaves a large family in good circumstances. The funeral was largely attended by his many friends, and was held at the Baptist church in this village on Wednesday, March 24th, at 10:30 a.m. The ministers in attendance were the Rev. J. T. Marsh of this place, the Rev. Jacob Weber of Shohola, and the Rev. J. Wagun, the German Lutheran minister of Hawley.
Mr. Rixton was a native of Switzerland, and was born March 19, 1821. He came to this country in 1847, and has been a citizen of this place for 33 years.
The bereaved family tender their heartfelt thanks to the friends who so kindly endeavored to assist them in their sad trouble.
