Mrs. Robert Sixbury of the town of Leray is 108 years old. The old boy has camped out more nights in the North Woods it is stated and killed more deer than any other man in the state but his sight now is as clear as any man of half his age. He was born in Herkimer county. Another chip off the same block, a young man of 102 years, visited his big brother Robert some three or four years since.

Robert Sixbury died on the 23d instant, at the house of his son, Isaac Sixbury in the town of Le Ray, Jefferson county, N.Y., at the age of 110 years and 7 months.
Mr. Sixbury had acquired great reputation as a hunter on John Brown’s tract, in northern New York, where he had slain over 2200 deer. When past eighty years of age he met with an accident, which necessitated the amputation of one of his legs, and he assisted the country doctor to perform the operation without flinching. The funeral was attended by several of Mr. Sixbury’s children, aged between 80 and 90 years. The deceased had enjoyed comparatively good health up to the day of his death.
