Mr. Augustus Jocelyn who has been suffering for some days from a virulent attack of small pox, died at his residence at the corner of Upper Third and Oak streets. Mr. J. was a native of New Haven, Connecticut, having been born in that city October 20, 1821, and was consequently, in his fifty-second year. His father emigrated to Cincinnati in 1826, where he resided until 1832, when he removed with his family to New Albany, where the family has resided almost continually to the present time. In 1834 Mr. Jocelyn was apprenticed to the printing with Mr. Thomas Collins, then the proprietor of the New Albany Gazette. After serving his apprenticeship, he worked at his trade during nearly the whole period of his life, part of the time as foreman on the Louisville Courier, before the war, but for the most part in this city. At one time, in connection with his father, the late Jared C. Jocelyn, Esq., he published a weekly newspaper in this city called the "New Albany Register". He was at one time Marshal of this city, we believe, for two or three terms. During the war of the rebellion he enlisted as a soldier in the Eighty-first regiment, was appointed Sergeant-Major, and shortly afterward Adjutant of the regiment, in which capacity he served until the close of its term of service. - New Albany Ledger Standard 10 Mar 1873
