Citizen Passes Away Yesterday Afternoon of General Debility
The death of Bushrod MILTON occurred at the home of his
daughter, Mrs. Wyatt H. INGRAM, Sr., yesterday afternoon, at
the advance age of 92 years. The
deceased was the father of Mrs. W. H. INGRAM, Sr., of this city,
and was well and favorably known, especially by the older citizens.
The remains were taken to Lexington this morning for interment.
The Courier-Journal of today says “Mr. Bushrod MILTON, whose
death occurred yesterday at Henderson, was a native of Virginia, and
was a lineal descendant of the noted ROSS family of the State, which
was closely related to the family of General George WASHINGTON.
He was only a youth when his parents moved to Lexington, KY.,
where Mr. MILTON lived until seven or eight years ago.
At that time, after the death of his wife, who was Miss Mary
CLAYPOOLE, of Versailles, Mr. MILTON went to Henderson, and there
passed the remainder of his days at the home of his oldest daughter,
Mrs. W. H. INGRAM.
His illness was only of a few days duration.
Mr. William A. MILTON, of this city, his son, was telegraphed
from Friday night and arrived at his father’s bedside before his death.
Four children survive the deceased – Mrs. Wyatt H. INGRAM
of Henderson; Mrs. W. W. FORD of Lakefoot, Arkansas; Mr. William
A. MILTON of this city, and Lieutenant John B. MILTON of
the United States Navy. Mr.
MILTON’S remains were taken to Lexington.
