Sudden Death - We learn that Miss Sarah Stants, Daughter of John Stants
Esq. of York Township in this county, was found dead in a field near her
fathers house, yesterday morning. She had gone out for some purpose
connected with her work, and being absent from the house longer than seemed
necessary, she was sought for by members
of the family and found dead - having fallen, as is supposed, in a fit.
Her age was about fourteen years. She was in previous good health.
This sudden visitation of Providence casts a deep gloom over the neighborhood
of the bereaved family.
