"Mr. Samuel TOWNSEND, and old citizen of the Lead mine region, and well known by most of our readers, died last Tuesday, at the residence of his son, H.S. TOWNSEND, in the town of Rush   He was 79 years of age.

In 1827 Mr. TOWNSEND removed from the state of New York to the Lead Mines and settled at Gratiot's Grove, Wisconsin, where he engaged to some extent in mining, but more extensively in raising and dealing in live stock   In 1848 he removed to the town of Pleasant Valley, in this County, and being at that time a widower, he soon after married the widow KELLOGG, of that town, and resided there till the time of his death   His widow about the age of himself, is still living   When he came to the Lead Mines Galena contained but a few log huts, and the region where he resided was but a wild prairie   He lived to see a dense population settle around him and become a wealthy and intelligent people   He saw his sons grow up, marry and become wealthy and extensive farmers' and honest, intelligent men, occupying positions of honor and trust   At the time of his death he had living, eight children, fifty-two grand children and twenty great grand children   Two sons residing at Shullsburgh, Wis., A.A. TOWNSEND and E.C. TOWNSEND have both been members of the Legislature of Wisconsin and of the Board of Supervisors of Lafayette County   H.S. TOWNSEND, of Rush, in this County, another son, has been a Representative in the Legislature of Illinois, and a member of the County Board of Supervisors   The oldest son, G. N. TOWNSEND, of Rush is probably the most extensive farmer in Jo Daviess County.

The Funeral Sermon will be preached on the 24th inst., at the Chelsea Meeting House."
