Raven, Charles Money (1819–1883)

A magisterial inquiry was held to-day by Mr. S. H. Farrall, J. P., at Runnymede, touching the death of Charles Money Raven, one of (if not the oldest) residents in this district, having settled here in about 1854 or 1855. The evidence of Dr. Courtenay, of Rochester, and H. M. Raven, a son of the deceased, was taken, which went to show that for many years deceased had suffered severely from bronchitis. On the day of his death a son of the deceased, Mr. H. M. Raven, called to see how his father was, and deceased remarked that he was a little better; at any rate, no worse. He was then lying down on the bed, from which he rose a few minutes after, and carrying a pillow, walked into the sitting-room, and laid down on the sofa, where he expired in about ten minutes without a sigh. Deceased was about 70 years old. He was of a retiring disposition, and very much esteemed in the district as an honorable man and a good neighbor. A verdict was returned of death from acute bronchitis, super-added to chronic bronchitis and asthma.
