At Turin, on the 19th of February, 1860, Benjamin Davenport, aged 82 
years.  Mr. Davenport was born in Spencertown, N.Y., on the 17th of
November 1778, and was one of the first settlers of the town of Lowville,
having removed here in the year 1799, since which time, except a few
years in Turin, he has resided  in Lowville, and has witnesses the growth
of the town from its infancy. He helped to make the first opening in
the heavy forest of old Lowville, and caused the sun first to look in
upon the beautiful land, which has since proved so productive and
valuable, and where live now so many happy families. Thus one by one the old
pioneers are laid aside. May the rising generation, young men and
maidens, emulate their virtues.

In this village, Feb. 7th, Mrs. Joab Burr, aged 80 years.  It is no
more than just, or due, that a tribute of respect be here paid to the
memory of the mourned and departed Mrs. Burr, whose death is announced
above.  Her real worth was best known to those most intimately acquainted
with the deceased.  She came to this village when it was almost a
wilderness, with here and there a mark of civilization; and from that time
until old age enfeebled her, her many acts of kindness were cheerfully
administered to the sick and afflicted, ones of this village and
vicinity. So also, her piety was deep earnest and constant.  She was a member
of the Lowville Baptist Church, from the time of its organization until
her death, and by this bereuvement the Church has lost one of its
oldest and efficient members.

On Friday, Feb. 17th, Mr. Caleb Morse, of Lowville, aged about 53

daughter of Miriah and Sarah Bobinson. Her last sickness was painful
beyond description and was borne with that patience and fortitude rarely
met with, which was a strong proof to all around her that she was well
fitted and prepared for the better world.  She died and passed away
without a struggle or a groan, and left a brilliant evidence to the
relatives and friends that their loss is her infinite gain. Lowville Banner
