Obituary.

Died of paralysis, at his residence in Alexandria, Asa J. Colby, aged 78 years and 22 days.
Asa J. Colby was born in Holland, Erie Co., N. Y., in the year 1811. He was married to Harriet L. George in 1834 and settled on a farm in his native town where he remained until 1869, when he removed to Minnesota and took a homestead in Lake Mary remaining there until too infirm to work when he sold out and located in Alexandria. He has been an invalid for many years, being almost helpless for two. He was a kind, honest, conscientious man; one who could truly say that he never knowingly wronged any one. He leaves a wife and an adopted son, and many other relatives to mourn his loss.
