Another of the old landmarks has passed away. Another of the early pioneer settlers of Bloomfield has bid farewell to earth and earthly things and taken his departure to that undiscovered country from whose bourne no traveler ever returns. This time it is Peter C. VanSlyke. He died at his home in Indianapolis on April 23, and was buried in Bloomfield cemetery April 25. He was born November 27, 1818. His father once owned all the ground upon which this city has been erected. "Uncle Peter," as he was commonly called, has lived here most all his life--only a few months ago he moved to Indianapolis. He was a very eccentric fellow, but in his way and in his day was a very clever gentleman. The broad mantle of charity should now be thrown over his faults, whatever they may have been, and his name honored in our memories for the many noble virtues he possessed. "Peace to his ashes."
