Newton, Feb. 23 Captain Lewis Van Blarcom, a prominent lawyer of this place, died Saturday. He suffered a stroke of paralysis on Tuesday night.

He was born at Sparta, in this county, July 19, 1835. At the age of 33 [sic], he began the study of law, but his studies were interrupted by the outbreak of the Civil War, and he went out as a lieutenant in the Fifteenth Regiment, New Jersey Volunteers.

He was wounded and captured and spent four months in Libby Prison. He was mustered out of the service as a captain. In 1865 Captain Van Blarcom was admitted to the bar, and in 1869 formed a partnership with Joseph Colt, now of Newark. For five years he served as Prosecutor of the Pleas, and for two years as a Chosen Freeholder.

He was active in Republican politics up to two years, when failing health caused him to cease all activities. He is survived by a widow, two sons, and a daughter.
