Obit - BOGARD, Abraham 8/23/1833

While scanning transcripts of old newspapers in Liverpool England I came across the following obit. Probably carried as a curiosity because of the old age. The website is -
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~liverpool/main.html .


"Obituaries August 23rd 1833

DIED

On the 14th of June last, in the poor house, In Maury county Tennessee, Abraham BOGARD, being 118 years and 4 days old. He never drank spirits, nor was sick, nor took medicine of any kind. He was once bled out of curiosity. He retained the faculties of hearing, seeing, and memory until the vital spark took it's final departure. He was born in the State of Delaware."

Hope this helps someone.
