Milton Densmore, a native of this town, died at his home in Seattle, Wash., March 30, aged 68 years. He was the son of William Densnore and is survived by one brother, James Densmore of Lebanon, N. H. One brother Ed. S. Densmore died at Washington, D. C., a few years ago. Mr. Densmore enlisted in Co., D, 12th Regt. Vt. Vols., and after the war he went to Beloit, Wis., where he married Rosamond S. Mervin in 1867, who survives him; also one son, J. Worth Densmore, who was East about a year ago and visited friends and relatives of his father. In 1871 Mr. Densmore moved to Seattle, Wash., where he was identified with the city's earlier growth and had held many important offices. He was largely interested in real estate. Some time ago he suffered a stroke of paralysis, from which he never recovered. The funeral was held from his late home, 1618 Kilbourne avenue, April 1. The interment was in the family lot in Lake View cemetery.
