Death  of  an  Old  Citizen
        Died, of the 24th of December, 1863, of Sciatica and Paralysis, at his residence in White River Township, Randolph county, Indiana,  Thomas Worth  in the 63d year of his age.  The deceased was a native of North Carolina, and removed to Indiana in 1822, and shortly after to the farm on which he died; making him a residence of Randolph county for nearly forty years.
        He was a warm friend to the reforms so long and ably advocated  in this part of the State by his brother  Daniel,  whose death was chronicled about a year ago.
        Although not a member of any religious society, he was a firm believer of the Christian religion, did much for the support of the Wesleyan Methodist Church, the meetings of which he generally attended, and died with the assurance that his day's work was done.  In him the county has lost a most estimable citizen.
