BRECKENRIDGE, P. C. - P. C. Breckenridge, for several years storekeeper at the Hayner distillery, suffered a stroke of apoplexy shortly after going to work Monday morning and died at 8 o'clock the same evening at his home on West Water street.  Col. Breckenridge had lived in Troy eight or nine years.  He was born at Melmore, Ohio, Feb. 1, 1846, and was married in 1872 to Miss Mattie L. Brown, who with their two sons, R. B. Breckenridge of South Bend, Ind., and Harry O. Breckenridge of Troy, survive him.  He was a veteran of the 142nd O. V. I. and a member of the G. A. R. Post at Norwalk where he lived before coming to Troy.  Before entering the government service he served two terms as sheriff of Huron county and was also mayor of Norwalk.  He was highly respected and admired by all with whom he came in contact.  Brief funeral services were held at the home Thursday morning and the body was shipped to Norwalk where funeral services will be held Friday.  Interment will be made in the cemetery in that city.
