CHARLES CROSS DEAD

HE WAS ONE OF THE OLDEST RESIDENTS OF FAIR HAVEN

His Death Was Very Sudden and Occurred on Monday Morning- His Grandfathers Were Revolutionary Patriots

Charles Cross of Fair Haven died on Monday of general debility, aged 83 years. He had been remarkably active up to the time of his death. He got up early on Monday morning, shaved himself and ate a hearty breakfast. After breakfast he sat down on the sofa to read a newspaper when he fell over dead.

Mr. Cross was born in Pennsylvania, but moved to Fair Haven when he was quite young. In his younger days he was active in business affairs but for many years he had lived a retired life. About sixty years ago he married Mary A Lewis, daughter of Jacob Lewis of Fair Haven. They began housekeeping in a house on the Lewis tract and had lived there ever since. Mrs. Lewis died about ten years ago. Three children survive Mr. Cross. They are Mrs. M. D. Snyder of Brooklyn, Mrs. B.Y. Pippey of New York and W. E. Cross of Fair Haven. Mr. Cross was descended from Revolutionary stock, both his maternal grandfather, Giles Williams, and his paternal grandfather, Thomas Cross, having served in the Revolutionary war.

The funeral was held this afternoon at half-past one o'clock at the Fair Haven Episcopal church. Rev. F. B. Crozier conducted the service. The body was buried at Fair View cemetery.
