Sunday afternoon this community was shocked by the startling intelligence that Calvin Basim, a respected and well known citizen of Strattansville, had been stricken with paralysis and was dead. The storke came at about six o'clock on Sunday morning and by two in the afternoon Mr. Basim died without regaining consciousness. Mr. Basim was a soldier in the war of the Rebellion, a private in Co. H, 37th Regiment, Eigth Reserve. He enlisted for three years under Capt. Wm. Lemon on April 30th, 1861. He lost a leg in the great battle of Antietam on September 14, 1862, and was discharged during the following December. After his wound healed Mr. Basim took up the burden of active work. He lived on a farm in Clarion township for many years but for the past few years he has lived in the villiage [sic]of Strattaville.
