Charles Lufburrow, Sr., died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Ann Mount, at Navesink, last Friday morning. He was 86 years old and had been sick a long time. He was prominent in church work, and had been a member of the Navesink Methodist church for fifty years. He leaves six living children, three sons and three daughters. His funeral was held on Monday morning at half-past ten o'clock at his late home, and half an hour later at the Navesink Methodist church. The interment was made in Fair View cemetery. He was well-to-do and left a considerable estate. Mr. Lufburrow had always lived in the neighborhood of Navesink, and of late years, after the death of his wife, he had made his home with his daughter, Mrs. Ann Mount. He had always enjoyed excellent health and had led a very active life up to within a short time of his death. His habits were extremely regular, and he had taken a great deal of out-door exercise. He took pride in his farms and had the best horses he could obtain. He retained his faculties to the last and made all the arrangements for his own funeral. He selected as the text from which his funeral sermon was to be preached the last clause of the tenth chapter of Numbers: "Let me die the death of the righteous and let my last end be like his." He also selected they hymns which he wished sung at his funeral and named those whom he would like to have serve as bearers.
Joseph Mount, one of the policemen of Long Branch, died at his home at North Long Branch on Tuesday of last week of typhoid fever after three weeks' sickness. He was 32 years old and leaves a widow and five children. His widow is also sick with typhoid fever and one of the children is sick with scarlet fever. The oldest child is twelve years of age and the youngest ten months. Mr. Mount was a son of John Mount and was born at the Highlands. He was an Odd Fellow and a Red Man, and for a time belonged to Hollywood council of American Mechanics.
George Hance, adopted son of John Brinley of Long Branch City, was found dead in bed at Atlantic Highlands on Monday of last week, where he had been staying for some time. A bottle of laudanum was found in his room and some think he committed suicide. He cut his finger a few days before his death and it is probable that he used the laudanum on the wound. He was an inveterate cigarette smoker and used to smoke in bed when he would wake up at night. He died penniless and a subscription of about $45 was taken up to bury him.
