      OBITUARY
      IRA C. HORTON

      As announced, Wednesday, Ira Coleman Horton died at his home in Howells, Wednesday morning at 3:15, at the age of seventy-three years, six months and twenty-two days.

      Mr. Horton was born at Otisville, August 9, 1837, a son of Loton and Adeline Horton. When a young man he went to New York to engage in the milk business and remained there forty years.

      Fifteen years ago he returned to Orange county and purchased a farm near Howells, which he improved and occupied up to two years ago when he went to California in the hope of regaining his health, which had been poor, owing to a stroke of paralysis sustained four years previous.

      After spending about one year in California, it was apparent to Mr. Horton and the members of his family that the change of residence did not prove as beneficial as had been hoped and it was decided to return to his former Orange county home there to spend the remaining days of his life.

      Mr. Horton had a large circle of friends, being highly esteemed for his sterling character and excellent business ability and his death has caused universal sorrow where ever he was known. Besides his wife, he is survived by one son and three daughters, as follows: Burre L., of Jersey City; Gertrude Ida, wife of Coe H. Corwin, of this city; Edith A. and Florence E., at home.

      The funeral will be held on Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock, at the late home. Interment at New Vernon.
