BRAINERD - It is with sorrow that we announce the death of Mrs. BRAINERD, the wife of A. H. Brainerd, Esq., formerly of Rome, New York.  This sad event took place at Niagara, Canada West, on Monday last, (April 21, 1856) and was communicated to the friends in this village by Telegraph.

The deceased was well known to many of our citizens.  For many years she was a resident of this place.  Her amiable disposition --her benevolent heart --the deep sympathy she always felt for suffering and distress, wherever it was brought to her notice, has embalmed her memory in the hearts of many, who will find their eyes moisten with the tear of sorrow, when they shall hear that she sleeps in the silent tomb.

Mrs. Brainerd's sickness and death was sudden and unexpected; the precise nature of her disease we have not learned.  Her remains we learn are to be brought to this place for interment.

We stated some weeks since that Mr. Brainerd having disposed of his business in Canada, would probably again make this village his home.  How sad the change.  Surrounded by every circumstance that should render life happy, and just at the time when they were anticipating a happy reunion with friends of earlier years, death crosses their threshold, and in a few short hours a beloved companion is wrapt in the silence of the tomb, thus furnishing another striking illustration of the frailty and instability of all earthly calculations.  Our citizens generally will deeply sympathize with Mr. Brainerd in his great affliction.  (RCApr23/1856)
