Gratiot County Michigan

Gratiot County

The telegraph brought news Saturday of the death of Judge Alvin N. Hart, of Lansing, a man well known in almost every section of the state. His disease was typhoid pneumonia, and he died within one week from the first active symptoms of the disease, though he had not been in good health for some time previous. " The deceased was seventy years of age, and had resided in Lansing for nearly a score of years, coming there from Lapeer, where he had long been a resident. He was a pioneer in Lansing, and as such he did much to hasten the growth of the city. No private character could be more blameless than his, and his public record gave satisfaction even to those who were his political opponents. He served two terms in the state senate many years ago, and two terms in the house, his last being in 1871. It was through his efforts more than any other person that Lansing was furnished with railroad communication, and his liberality in making local improvements has greatly benefited the capital city.
