From: The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro,
Mr. Samuel Carpenter died at his residence in Middlebury last Tuesday, after a
lingering illness. He was seventy-three years of age, and was born and
raised on the farm on which he was living at the time of his death -- a very
unusual thing in this land and day of many changes. He left a wife and
five children to mourn the loss of a cherishing husband and father.
Date: Wednesday, January 30, 1895
Carpenter was a useful and patriotic citizen and a man of strict integrity.
His memory will be held in lasting honor by his neighbors and by all who knew
