Mr Henry A. Grigsby, one of Trigg county's most prominent citizens, was found dead near his home five miles south-east of Cadiz Monday afternoon about five oÕclock.

Mr Grigsby and his sister, Miss Savannah GRIGSBY, lived together at the old Grigsby home place, and at the usual hour in the afternoon Mr Grigsby went to the horse lot to fed the stock. Failing to return after a reasonable absence, his sister went to look for him. She failed to find him about the stables, and returning to the house she saw him lying on the ground between the house and pond something like a hundred yards south of the house.

She hurried to him and found him cold in death. Both hands were in his pockets and while the cause of his death is not known, the general supposition is that in going to the pond his feet slipped on the ice and he fell violently to the ground, and his head striking with such force that death followed before assistance reached him. Mr Grigsby was about sixty years of age and was unmarried.

An only brother, Esq. R.J. GRIGSBY, of this county, and several sisters, Mrs Peter T. LIGHT, Mrs Ollie SHOLAR, and Miss Savannah GRIGSBY of Trigg county; Mrs CARLOSS of near Hopkinsville, Mrs CHAMPION, of Paducah and Mrs Davenport, of Graves county, besides many other relatives and friends, are left to mourn his death.
The remains were laid to rest Tuesday afternoon at the old home burying ground in the presence of many friends
