Northfield, March 13. - Michael Kingsley, a resident of this town for many years, died last night at his home at the age of 90 years. He was born in County Kearney, Ireland, but came to this country when 14. He had spent all of his mature life in this town, except for a few years in his younger days when he was employed by the Pennsylvania railroad.

He enlisted at Northfield as a private in the Civil war and afterward became a farmer on Turkey hill. While in the military service, one leg was fractured and later broken, ultimately resulting in the amputation six years ago. Since then he had been confined to his bed.

Mr. and Mrs. Kingsley celebrated their golden wedding Jan. 24. He is survived by his wife, Sarah; two sons, Daniel of Buffalo, N.Y., amd Lawrence of Schenectady, N.Y; five daughters, Mrs. Harrison Herms of Newport, Ky., Mrs. Emil Jandran of Springfield, Mass., Mrs. Mary Gillette of Windsor, Mrs. Thomas Gillespie of Northfield Falls and Mrs. Roy Tatro at the home place; also 16 grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
