Sarah Stants
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.
