Dargin, James (1805–1840)

On Sunday morning last, Mr. James Dargin, who resided near Windsor, ate a comfortable breakfast, and having gone down the yard, as he was returning was suddenly seized with illness. He stopped short and called to his son to come to his assistance. His son and his wife quickly came, into whose arms he fell, saying he was dying. He bade farewell to his wife, and soon became insensible. In the mean time, Mr. Surgeon White had been sent for, as also Dr. Dowe. The former cut the temporal artery, which enabled the deceased to rally for a few minutes only, when he expired. Mr. Surgeon White had been in attendance on him during the last two months, and expected that his death would be sudden; and the deceased was perfectly aware of it himself. It appears that a suffusion of blood on the brain had caused apoplexy. Mr. Dargin was much respected and deeply regretted by all who knew him. Windsor Correspondent of Herald.
