SUDDEN DEATH OF AMOS WILSON.

Amos WILSON, of DeWitt township, came to this county in the year 1850, and for thirty-five years lived on the farm on which he first settled when he came here from Ohio. He was born in Maryland in the year 1803, and had reached the ripe age of eighty-two years and ten months. He was a man well-preserved for his years, and he and his aged wife lived alone on the home farm and kept everything in running order. Last Saturday the old gentleman attended the sale of the personal property of his old friend, the late Orin WAKEFIELD, and did not get back home till late in the afternoon. Between six and seven o'clock in the evening he was in the act of pulling off his boots when the chair tilted back with him and he fell over dead. There was no one in the room with him except his wife. When she reached the old gentleman, life was extinct. The doctor, who was afterward summoned, pronounced the cause of his death to be heart disease. Death was quick and sudden. The old veteran was spared the pains and sufferings incidental to wasting disease. What a blessing to be called from time to eternity in such a manner. His sister, the mother of the WEEDMAN family of Farmer City, came to her death in like manner. She was milking a cow when she fell dead from heart disease. Amos Wilson was the last of his father's family. He was the father of twelve children, nine of whom are still living. He was an upright man and had the respect and confidence of his neighbors. He was buried last Tuesday in the DeWitt cemetery.
