Mr. Frederick Brenneman, one of the prominent citizens of Paint Township, died suddenly at his home near Clarion Junction, aged between 64 and 65 years. Mr. Brenneman’s call came very suddenly and unexpectedly-there were no previous premonitions as far as could be learned. He went out to the barn and put the cows therein, and in a short time his son found him leaning up against the side of the barn in a sort of a crouching position, unconscious. He was taken to the house and medical aid was summoned, but he was beyond help. Mr. Brenneman spent most of his life in Paint Township and his occupation was that of farmer and lumberman. He was married to Miss Wagner, a sister of the late Wm. B. Wagner, and is survived by a number of children, his wife having died a number of years ago. The deceased was a soldier during the civil war, serving 3 years as a member of Co. E 10th Pa. Reserves and was wounded once. He was mustered into the service early, July 21, 1861 and served faithfully his term of 3 years for his country. May he rest in peace. The funeral will take place today, Thursday, from his late home.
