Name:   Samuel Carpenter

From:  The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Pennsylvania
Date:  Wednesday, January 30, 1895

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.

Mr. 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 him.
