The funeral of Mr. James Doxey occurred at the Methodist church last Saturday afternoon, the 27th instant. He was employed at the Marble works of J. Adams & Sons, was considered a good workman and a young man of generous impulses. During the war he was a soldier in one of the New York regiments, was quite severely wounded during his army service, and from this injury he never fully recovered. He died of typhoid pneumonia on the 24th, at the residence of his brother, Geo. Doxey, on Washington street.
