Oliver Clapp passed peacefully away at his home March 27 after along illness from complications, which had been gradually growing worse since last October. Mr. Clapp was born in Barre, Feb. 28, 1827. He was a loyal G. A. R. member of Morrill Post of Cabot having been a member since it was first organized. He had a good record as a soldier, having served in Co. I, 11th Vt. Regiment for two years and two months. He was faithfully cared for by his wife and children and was patient till the last. The funeral was held at the house, on Thursday, Rev. Scott F. Cooley officiating. The house was filled by old friends and neighbors and relatives from a distance. He leaves a wife, who is in poor health, four children and five grandchildren to mourn for him. He will be missed by his neighbors and especially the children of this place. The remains were taken to Hardwick and placed in the receiving vault.

"One precious to our heart is gone.
The voice we loved is stilled.
The place made vacant in our home
Can never more be filled.

"Our father in his wisdom called
The one his love had given.
And though in the tomb his body lies,
The Soul is safe in Heaven."
