Mat Snyder, Ed COONS, and Walter Kendall attended a meeting at
Grandview Wednesday night and Thursday morning of last
week. John Snyder’s wife fell while getting over a fence
a few days ago and broke one of her arms between the shoulder and
elbow. Uncle Elisha Heath and Arva COONS are both very
sick at present and their lives are despaired of. Arva
has lung fever and Mr. Heath is very old and has been quite feeble
for some time. A short time ago he took a cold, which
settled in his lungs. James Bell has taken a lease on
some land near Oliver and will move his family there
