Died, On the morning of the 26th inst., Mrs. Elizabeth Kain Burnside, aged 68 years 7 months and 23 days. She was born December 3d, 1797, near Harper's Ferry, Virginia, and removed to Illinois in 1819. Thus the old are passing away. Mrs. Burnside was, perhaps, the oldest citizen and earliest inhabitant of Clinton county, who has, since her removal to the county, always lived here. We believe she in the only person but one of our citizens who resided in the county as long ago as 1819. To our oldest citizens she has been long and favorably known. In her early life she embraced the Christian religion and attached herself to the Methodist Episcopal Church, and has always deported herself as a devoted Christian and a good woman. Her loss will be mourned by many relatives and connections, and her place in the social world will be greatly felt and missed.
