Henry C. Birdsall, aged eighty-one years, and a resident of Lancaster County for forty years, died at 5 p.m. yesterday at his home, five miles north of Waverly, from apoplexy. He was out in the yard when attacked. He was carried to the house and Dr. Talcott of Greenwood summoned, but Mr. Birdsall died before aid could reach him.
He leaves a wife and seven children, four sons and three daughters.
