          We are called upon to chronicle the death of this estimable gentleman.  For the past ten years or so, he has resided in Shelby county, this State, but previously, he had been for a long number of years a resident of Manchester township in this county.  All who knew  Peter C. Wilcox  acknowledged him to be the highest type of Christian gentleman.  In every relation of life he was such.  As a man he was always amiable, kind hearted and cheerful.  Indeed, he was so disposed to accommodate every one whom he could, that his disposition in this respect was taken advantage of to his loss, on many occasions.  As a Christian he was earnest.  The community where he first located, in Shelby county, owed to him, more than to any other one man, the establishment of a church and the erection of a church building, which in a short time done great good in the neighborhood.  His disease was typhoid fever, ending with hiccoughs.  He was sick about ten days.  His age was about sixty-three years.  He was a brother of  Mrs. B. T. W. S. Anderson  of Lawrenceburgh.  He was buried last Saturday under the auspices of the Waldron Masonic Lodge, of which he was a member.  He had been married three times and leaves a large family.
