Bratton---At Edon, Ohio, July 18, 1882, Ira Bratton, age 53 years, 4 months and 6 days.

The deceased was born in Mifflin county, Penn., and moved to Williams county, Ohio, in 1843, settling on the farm which he occupied at the time of his death.

Though his health had been very poor for some time his death was sudden. He was last seen about one o'clock Tuesday afternoon, when he left the house, for the barn. At supper time, as he had not returned, search was made, resulting in the finding of his body in the cow stable, appearances indicating that he had been dead several hours. A wife and seven children are left to mourn the loss of an affectionate husband and father. His two sons, E. A. Bratton, of this place, and A. T. Bratton, of Beaver City, Neb., who is visiting here, were sent for, and arrived there the same night.

The funeral occurred Wednesday, the sermon being preached by Rev. M. Dunlap, of West Jefferson.

Wednesday, July 26, 1882,
p. 8, col. 4.
