Aged Resident Dead
Edward Binnix Succumbs to a Stroke of Paralysis

Edward Binnix, long a resident of this city and widely known, died suddenly Saturday evening at his residence, 940 G street southwest, from the effects of a stroke of paralysis received the previous Sunday. During his long residence in Washington, Mr. Binnix has been widely known as a plastering contractor, having superintended the plastering of the Capitol more than forty years ago, and later, being in charge of the same work at the State, War and Navy Department building, the United States pension office and the new Congressional Library.

Probably no resident of South Washington had a more extended acquaintance in that section or more friends to mourn his sudden taking off. He leaves a widow and six children, four sons and two daughters. The deceased was one of the first to offer his services to his country when the call was made by President Lincoln for volunteers, and while stationed at Long bridge guarding the entrance to the city he contracted rheumatism, which ultimately developed into paralysis, which ended his life.
