bullet  General Notes:

"BROOKFIELD -- was formed from Paris, (Oneida co.,) March 5,
1795; and Columbus (Chenango co.) was taken off in 1805. It is
the S.E. corner town of the co. Its surface is a hilly upland,
broken by the valleys of Unadilla River and Beaver Creek.
Unadilla River forms the E. boundary. Beaver Creek flows
through near the center, and the E. branch of the Chenango
through the N. W. part. Several streams take their rise in
the town. The soil is a gravelly loam."

Sketch of a Pioneer Citizen of Cedar Rapids.; At 2:40 this
morning the silent reaper visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. J.
R. Anthony, claiming the former its victim. For several weeks
he has been suffering from a combination of lumbago and heart
trouble which became serious last Saturday, since which time he
has grown rapidly worse until death relieved him. Mr. Anthony
was born in Brookfield, Madison county, New York, Dec. 23,
1820, being the oldest of five children, two of whom survive
him. In 1847 he was married to Marilla H. Mabie, whose noble
Christian life, energetic nature and cheery disposition have
been an inspiration to him for more than fifty years. Their
declining years have been years of unusual happiness,
surrounded as they were with loving children and grandchildren,
who have availed themselves of every opportunity to keep the
cup of happiness in old age full. The aged wife, tp whom the
entire community extends its sincerest sympathy at this time,
together with seven of the nine children born to the union,
were at the bedside of the deceased when the angel of death
bore his spirit on its flight to eternal rest. The eldest son,
F. A. Anthony of Chicago, arrived last night in time to be
recognized and receive his father's blessing. The other
children who survive him are Mrs. M. M. Hall, Mrs. E. O. Edson,
Mrs. J. M. McElheran, Charles F. Anthony, James Riley Anthony
and George A. Anthony, all of this city, who have been with him
during his last illness. He was a member of the G.A.R., having
fought valiantly with the Twentieth Iowa volunteers from l861
to l865. Mr. and Mrs. Anthony were charter members of the
First Baptist church of this city, having united with same in
l860. His character and religious principles have served to
develop the highest type of citizenship and fatherhood. The
