"Sudden Death of an Old Citizen. - Mr. John H. Baggett, an old and well-known citizen of this city, died suddenly at his residence, on Wilkes Street, between Fayette and Payne, at an early hour this morning. The deceased had been fofr the past few days apparently as well as ever, and had attended to business as usual. This morning he arose seemingly in good health and had eaten his breakfast. Before arising from the table he was taken ill and died in a few minutes, it is supposed from heart trouble. Mr. Baggett was eighty years old and had resided here all his file. The deceased was a butcher by occupation, and had been engaged in that business in this city for the past half century. He was a consistent Christian gentleman, and had been a member of Trinity M. E. Church for many years." -Alexandria Gazette, Dec 18, 1888, page 3.
