On Sunday night last, April 7, Robert Heren, aged eighty-five years, departed this life, at the residence of his son, Judge William Heren, near this city. Mr. Heren migrated from Highland county, Ohio, about 1842 or 1843, and settled in this county, some six miles north of Savannah. Mr. Heren was a farmer, was noted for his integrity and honesty, was of a quiet, peaceable disposition and an excellent citizen. The cause of his death was extreme old age. Eleven children blessed his lfie (six sons and five daughters), all of whom are living with the exception of Mrs. Ralph T. Wilson, who was formerly known to many of our citizens. The wife of Robert Heren preceded him to the grave some twenty years, since which time the old gentleman has lived with his children until within a few years, when he made his home permanently with Judge Heren, his son, at whose residence he died. He was buried on Tuesday last.
