HARTLAND

John Bramble, a former resident, but more recently of Yankton, Da., who arrived about a week since to transact some business concerning a pension, died very suddenly last Thursday morning, at the house of Mrs. Catherine Shepard, his mother-in-law. He was buried by the Masonic fraternity, in the new cemetery. He leaves a wife and eight children.
