Adam Alexander, aged seventy tears died at his home in Allen at seven o'clock this morning of lung trouble, which he contacted in the army. Mr. Alexander, entered the service in 1861 with the 81st O.V.I. and was three years with that regiment. He was twice a prisoner of war but was retaken both times. Having given years of his best life to the service of his country, he returned to his family a physical wreck, and for ten years has not been able to support himself. He has been confined to his bed for a year, and having no property has been entirely dependent upon the charity of friends.
