Charles H. Case

DEATH OF AN OLD SETTLER Charles H. Case died last evening at his residence, of angina pectoris---a contraction or tightening of the chest, which causes great pain. Mr. Case was past half a century of years; the greater part of which were spent amongst us. He seemed a little better just before he died; and then he complained that his heart was failing him. The Rev. Mr. Hunter was at hand with kind and consoling words at the time of the death. The funeral will take place on Friday afternoon from the residence of the deceased,---and the Old Settlers will attend the remains of their old friend to the grave.
