Died, in this town, on Sunday evening, the 11sth inst., Ira F. Cotton, a soldier in the rebellion, aged 69 years. For long years he has suffered from the uncomfortable disease, the Asthma, largely increased by being in the war, and since that time has been obliged to use the utmost care to prolong his life. Naturally of a rather slender constitution, his life for the last few years has hung upon a very slender thread. He was a good neighbor and a faithful friend.
