Death of Another old Citizen

Mr. Thomas Bishop, one of the oldest and most
successful merchants of our town, died at his
residence on the 8 inst(?), after a long and painful
illness, in the 63d year of his age. The event was not
unexpected to him or his friends.  A Northern man by
birth, he cast his lot with us some thirty or forty
years ago.  His enterprise and farseeing judgment
contributed materially to the prosperity of the town.
He was for many years a leading member of the
Presbyterian church, and worked faithfully in the
cause of his Master. The church has lost one of it's
most zealous members and the town a valuable citizen.

During the funeral services on Monday, the stores of
the town were closed and business generally suspended,
as a token of respect for the deceased.
