About Asa Leonard Townsend

It is with sadness we chronicle the death of Mr. A . L. [Asa Leonard] Townsend, one of the oldest citizens of the county, which occurred at the residence of his brother, Captain T.L. Townsend, on the 26th inst., in the fifty-sixth year of his age. Mr. T. had been a continual sufferer for about twenty-five years with the asthma. We have known the deceased intimately for thirty years. He was a kind husband, an affectionate father, a good neighbor, and a devoted Christian, and died with all the armor on, assuring his companion and brother that "all was well". He was buried in the Odd Fellows Rest at Weimar by the Masonic fraternity. Five of his brothers were present to witness the sad scene, three of whom joined in the mystic ceremony, in repeating the rite peculiar to that fraternity. "the dust shall return to the earth as it was, and the Spirit to God, who gave it". A large concourse of friends were in attendance. Colorado County Citizen, September 1, 1881
