the Revolution have been collected from the newspapers of Montgomery
John Andrew Sox.-Died at the residence of Charles Corson in Upper
Providence township, on Tuesday the 23d ulto. John Andrew Sox, a
soldier of the Revolution. His death was singular and unexpected,
being a few moments before his death to all appearance in good
health, when he suddenly fell and expired-thus after having escaped
the dangers of the field of battle, and just having retired to spend
his days in quiet, he is snatched in one moment into eternity.
