We are again called upon to record the death of one of our oldest and most respected citizens. Mr. Peter VanDenbergh died at his residence, in this village, on February 21st, at seven o'clock in the morning.

Mr. VanDenbergh was born in the town of Hoosick, Rensselear county, in 1792. He removed to the town of Farmington in the spring of 1835, and as he moved with wagons, was ten days on the road. He purchased what was known as the Tim Allen farm, upon which he resided until the spring of 1876, when he sold it to his two sons, and purchased a residence a short distance east of this village.

He was a man of remarkably strong constitution, which successfully resisted the inroads of disease until the very last, but finally yielding to the weight of years, the oil in the lamp of life was exhausted, and, like a shock of grain fully ripe, he has passed to his reward.

He experienced religion early in life, and was a member of the Presbyterian church in this village for many years. He was a kind father and obliging neighbor, and leaves a large circle of friends and relatives to mourn his loss.

The funeral services were held at the Presbyterian church on Friday morning, Feb. 23rd, at 11 o'clock. The sermon was preached by the Rev. Mr. Ennis, from the text, Weep not for me, but for yourselves and for your children, which was selected by the deceased, as was also the funeral anthem which was sung at the services.
