Means, James A.

Died. In Concord, on Monday morning, the 15th inst. after an illness of four days with the billious colic, James A. Means, Esq., high sheriff of Cabarrus county, and Colonel Comd't. of the Mecklenburg and Cabarrus regiment of Cavalary, in the 27th year of his age.  The death of Col. Means is no less an affliction to his numerous and highly respectable relatives, than it is a public bereavement to the county of which he was so useful and distinguished a citizen and native.  Perhaps no man in that county shared so largely in the confidence and affections of the people, as he did; and his public career evinced that that confidence was not misplaced.

Died. In Cabarrus county, after a short, but painful sickness, on Saturday 17th May, William B., son of Gen. Wm. and Mrs. Jane C. Means, aged 2 years, 3 months, and 29 days.

Moose, Sallie

Sad news comes to us of the death of Mrs. Sallie Moose, the widow of Mr. John Moose of No. 6 township.  Her death resulted from heart failure and was very sudden.  She had eaten a hearty breakfast and ere long was seized with an attack of heart disease and died very suddenly.  Mrs. Moose was at least 60 years of age.  She was the mother of Mr. Harris Moose of No. 6 township, and was also the mother of Mr. Henry Graeber, of Rowan county.  She was also the mother of Mr. Weddington Moose, who died only a short while ago.  The funeral of the remains was preached today (Monday) at Mt. Olive church and the remains interred in that cemetery.
