Brotheridge, Thomas (?–1827)

We have the pain to record the death of Captain Brotheridge, a Gentleman long-resident in the Colony, and greatly esteemed by all who knew him. There is something deeply melancholy in the premature death of this Gentleman. He himself was in the full vigour of manhood, bidding fair to live to an old age. His late spouse (Miss Johnston of Annandale) was also in the bloom of life. She, her husband, and one of two beautiful children, are all suddenly found asleep in the arms of death.
