Our entire community was startled Monday to learn that Mr. Christopher Vincent was dead. On the day previous, about 2 o'clock, he was at work on his farm and was alone, when he fell helpless to the ground, suffering from a severe stroke of paralysis. He was discovered lying on the ground, by Mr. Marshall Coon, who was passing by with his team. He carried him to his home, when Drs. Post and Borden were immediately called. But neither their skill nor the tender care of friends could avail. The following evening, about midnight, he expired. Mr. Vincent was about 65 years of age, and had been an honored resident of this town for many years, having come west about the year 1840. For several years, he was assessor of the town of Milton, and performed the duties of that exacting office to the general satisfaction of our citizens. The funeral services were hels at 11 a. m. yesterday, at the Milton Junction S. D. B. Church, of which he was a member. Mr. Vincent was a man of few words, but was the posssessor of a kind and generous nature, and was universally respected by all who knew him.
