ROBERT LARIMER, one of the early pioneers of Richland County, died at 4 o'clock Friday morning at his home in the southeast corner of Madison Township. His death was due to old age and a gradual wasting away of his strength. His age was 82 years.

Mr. Larimer's father emigrated from Ireland to this country in 1790 and settled first in Virginia and later moved to Fairfield County, Ohio, where Robert was born in 1807. In 1815 the family moved to Madison Township, Richland County, where Robert has ever since resided. But few persons have lived so many years in Richland County as Mr. Larimer. He was twice married. His first wife and their six children are all dead. His second wife and two children born of this union, are still living. Mr. Larimer was a life-long Democrat and a staunch friend of the SHIELD AND BANNER, of which he was one of the oldest subscribers and of which he had been a reader nearly all his life. He served as a trustee of Madison Township for a number of years and was all his life honored and respected by those who knew him. In religion he was a United Presbyterian.

The funeral will take place tomorrow at 2 p.m. Interment in the Mansfield Cemetery.
