Princeton, March 20--A. Butterfield dropped dead at his home east of this place Tuesday evening [March 19]. Mr. Butterfield and his son Orval had been cutting wood during the afternoon and toward evening he remarked to his son that he would not be able to walk to the house. His son started at once to get a team and was ready to return for his father when he came to the house and was in the act of stepping in the door when he fell and expired without speaking.

Mr. Butterfield was in his 75th year. He leaves his widow, two daughters and a son. For the past several years he had made his home with his son, Orval, not being able to conduct his farm himself. Mr. and Mrs. Butterfield had only returned from an extended visit with their daughters in Colorado, some two weeks ago. This trip and visit Mr. Butterfield had enjoyed very much.

The deceased was a veteran of the Civil War, having served in a Michigan cavalry regiment through all the Virginia campaigns. He was under General Phil Sheridan and was with him at the time of the famous ride when defeat was turned into victory.

Mr. Butterfield was a pioneer of the Princeton section. A man of retiring disposition, unassuming but deeply interested in the welfare of his community, his state and nation. It is needless to state that he was every inch a patriot, a lover of his country and his flag which he fought to preserve.
