Death Notice for Henry Loucks

            At Stone Arabia, in the town of Palatine, County of Montgomery, on the 25th of May last, after a short illness, in the 88"th year of his age, Mr. Henry Loucks, a person of unblemished reputation. He was born in this State, of pious parents, and was among the earliest settlers in Stone Arabia — Being brought tip from his youth in the principles of the Christian religion, he became at an early period of his life a member of the German reformed church, and as such continued unformily a faithful an zealous supporter of it until he was called to a better home. Pew persons, both by nature and habit, led a more peaceable, sober and exemplary life — That he "wronged no one" was his ambition, and a principle to which he adhered with scruulous exactness. As a testimony of respect to the memory of the deceased, and an expression of grief for departed worth, the most numerous concourse of relatives and acquaintances ever witnessed on a similar occassion in that part of the country, attended his funeral.
