We learn from the Chicago Journal that Mr. Timothy S. Fitch died suddenly in Chicago on Sunday, from apopleptic stroke.

The Journal says:

Mr. Fitch was forty-five years of age. He was born in Ticonderoga, northern New York, removed to Illinois while yet a youth, and had resided in Chicago since 1858. He was largely interested in real estate, particularly in the southern suburbs, he having platted and laid out the villages of Woodlawn and South Shore. At the time of his death, he was residing at the United States Hotel. He leaves a large fortune to his widow. A large circle of friends and relatives in this city mourn his sudden demise.

The funeral will take place from the U.S. Hotel, Wednesday, at 11 a.m., to Graceland.

Mr. Fitch was a brother of John Fitch, Esq., and formerly resided in Alton, where he has many friends. His death, in the prime of manhood, will be greatly regretted.
