Lawrenceville, Va, June 15 -- Mr. Samuel Keyes, a prominent farmer of this county, died suddenly of heart failure at his home, near Freeman's yesterday morning between 6 & 7 o'clock. Mr Keyes was a native of Vermont, having removed to this section a good many years since.

He was a man of sound judgement and a very useful citizen, and was universally respected in his neighborhood. He served in the Union Army under General McClellan, and was a member of the G. A. R.
