About the 1st of January he was taken with a stroke of paralysis and since then has been perfectly helpless. Death came as a relief to the patient sufferer.

Mr. Pitcher was a man well beloved by the whole community having since boyhood taken God as his guide and advisor. He was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church and also of the Odd Fellows. Everything that could be done by loving hands was done to prolong his last days and although it is hard to say goodbye to one everyone loves so well, we know his righteous should rest in heaven.
