THE HARVEST OF DEATH
(From the Bloomville Mirror, April 5, 1870 page 2 column 2)

Death has gathered a grand harvest during the past twenty-one years in the vicinity of Bloomville. We moved here on the 6th of April 1849. Casting a retrospective glance of community as it then existed, and comparing it with that of to-day, we find almost a new generation before us. In order to show our readers how swiftly we are passing away, we have completed a list of business men of our personal acquaintance, now dead, together with their ages as near as could be acertained, who have lived within a circle of six miles from Bloomville, within the past 21 years. This is exclusive of women and children, whose names would increase the list at least two-thirds.
