1926 The sad news reach this place by telegram Wednesday of the death of David Whyborn, at Mexico, one of our former residents. Te old gentleman and his companion moved to Mexico a year or two ago, where they resided with their son John - He was in his 76th year, yet his fine constitution and wonderful activity and vigor gave promise of still many years of life; but the uncertainty of human expectations are thus again painfully brought before us. Several months ago he was taken down with typhoid fever, accompanied by defective digestion, from which at times he slightly rallied, but during the last two weeks gradually growing weaker, until at last Death closed his sufferings Tuesday at midnight - His fine, open, honorable characteristics, we all remember, too well to need recapitulation here. It may be briefly said that he was an honor to the places where he lived; and his life of singular purity and usefulness in this limited sphere, has been transferred to that After-Life of peace, understanding and happiness illimitable?

The funeral services were held in the Presbyterian Church, at Mexico, yesterday afternoon, Dr. Whyborn and wife, from this place attending.

This decision throws costs to the amount of nearly two hundred dollars on Horey ? which from present appearences, the Pettibone estate will likely have to settle. Pettibone, Daniel (I348)
