Death Notice of Samuel Leece
July 19, 1889|
Captain Samuel Leece died on Tuesday last after an illness of some weeks. The funeral procession to the Citizen's Cemetery, where he was buried with Masonic honors, was a long one. Capt. Leece had been a well known and esteemed citizen and his taking off in the prime of a vigorous manhood was a cause for universal regret. He was a man of affairs, a successful farmer and had represented this district in the State Senate. Peace to his ashes.
