Old Veteran Passes Away.
Joseph Boulett died Monday night at 8:15 o'clock after a long illness of chronic bronchitis, at the home of his son, John Boulett. The funeral was held Wednesday morning at the Roman Catholic church of St. James the Greater and the body placed in the vault.
Deceased was born in the Province of Quebec and was 86 years, 6 months and 10 days old. He came to South Brewer, Me., when a young man, and from there to Vermont. He lived in Holland and Derby Center, and from there came to Island Pond where he has lived for many years. Thirteen years ago his wife died. They had seven children, five of whom, three sons and two daughters, are living: Joseph and Frankie Boulett of West Derby and John Boulett of this place; Mrs. Adeline Davis of Beebe, Que., and Mrs. Mary Mosher of Woodbury, Vt. One son, Theodore, was killed 19 years ago in the railroad yard here, being his by an engine while going to his work, and a daughter, who died at North Stratford, N. H. For the last eight years he made his home with his son, John Boulett and wife, where he was tenderly cared for in the declining years of his life.
Besides the above he is survived by a sister, Mrs. John Mutty of South Brewer, Me. Eight years ago Mr. Boulett visited this sister, who he had not seen for 45 years. The children were all present at the funeral except the daughter, Mrs. Mosher of Woodbury.
Mr. Boulett was a veteran of the Civil war, a member of Erastus Buck Post No. 8, G. A. R. He enlisted from the town of Holland in the 3d Vermont Battery and served two years. He was an industrious citizen and brought up a large family. He will be greatly missed in the home circle where his long and faithful life was devoted to their welfare.
