Marlboro Gazette
02 Feb 1853

"On Monday, January 31, 1853, at Fort Washington, in this County, Honorable Alexander C. Magruder, age 75, passed on."
The deceased had filled many honorable offices in our state, and at the time of his death, he was reporter to the Court of Appeals. He was the last Chief Judge of this Judicial District under the old Constitution, and he discharged the duties of that office with an ability which had won for him a name among the first jurists of our country. As a lawyer, he had few superiors; as a Judge, he was able and upright; and as a man, he was beloved by all who knew him. Those who had frequented our Quondam Country Court would remember his silver hairs with reverence; and those who knew him well and appreciated him would long mourn his departure from amoung the things of life.
