Death of an Early Settler.
Noah Lindsay, one of the early settlers in this county, died last Friday, July 28, at his home in Pleasant township from the effects of heart trouble and a complication of ailments resulting from the infirmities of old age. He was born in Franklin county, Virginia, September 27, 1814, and came to this county in the spring of 1839, and has lived in Pleasant township thirty-nine years. He was married to Miss Deborah Fanning June 5, 1842, and had a family of eleven children of whom five are now living. He was a member of the United Brethren church and has lived a christian for more than fifty years. His age at his death was 78 years, 10 months and 1 day. Funeral took place Sunday at the Ijamsville church before a large congregation conducted by Rev. Mattox, of Laketon. The family wish us to extend their thanks to their neighbors and the public generally for assistance in the sad trial through which they have just passed. Mr. Lindsay was one of the earliest pioneers that settled near this place and was familiar with its history ever since. He loved to talk of the old times and last fall furnished us with matter for one of our best pioneer sketches which precludes the necessity of further mention at this time.
