Hiram Stotts, an old and honored resident of this city and county, died suddenly last evening at his residence on South Jackson Street. He had just seated himself at the supper table when he was stricken with paalysis, and died in a few moments. He was in his 84th year, and had been a very hearty man for one of his age. Mr. Stotts had been elected Sheriff of Allen County in 1849, along with Thomas J. Jacobs, Treasurer; Richard Metheany, Clerk; David Dalzell, Auditor; Wm. Dowling, Surveyor; and Samuel Rockhill, William Ackerman and J. B. Haller, Commissioners. At the same time James Cunningham was elected State Senator, and Henry Lipps, Representative. Of this whole list Mr. Stotts was the last survivor. He held the office of Sheriff till 1853, when he was succeeded by Matthew Ridenour. He identified himself closely with the progress of the county and town in those days and for years afterwards. He was instructor at the early militia musters, and during the first year of the war acted as drill-master to the patriotic younger men who turned out in defence of the Union. For a number of years he has lead a very quiet life, his increasing age precluding his former activity in affairs.
