Longevity

[Transcriber's Note: It is not clear whether this is a list of deaths that was compiled over a period of time or if all the deaths occurred at about the time of publication. The entry below about the Loder family would suggest they were compiled over a long period of time. But there is the possibility that the article is referring to two separate John Loder's.]
