Leroy N. Stearns died at his residence in this village Sunday morning at 2 o'clock after a brief illness. The news of his death was received by all with expressions of real sorrow and is worthy of something more than a passing notice.
He was born in this town Nov. 1st 1843, on the place where James Stowe now lives. He was a soldier in the late war and received injuries in battle from which he never fully recovered. He engaged in the mercantile business at this place in 1865 since which time he has, besides building up and conducting an extensive trade, made very many improvements in building &c. , which has materially changed and added to the general appearance and enterprise of the place. His generous qualities and manly bearing made for him many friends, and his integrity in business affairs gained for him the confidence and respect of all. He leaves a widow and two children who the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community.
