Death Of William Boardman Earle

William Boardman Earle died at his home in the south part of town last Saturday morning at the age of 83 years and eight days. He had been in poor health for a long time but had been able to be out, until a few weeks ago. He suffered a shock one week before his death, from the effects of which he never rallied.

The funeral was held yesterday afternoon from his home, Rev. Otis Raspe of the Universalist Church officiating. Interment was in the family lot beside the remains of his son, who died about two years ago.

The deceased was born in Morristown April 10, 1825, on the old Earle Homestead, now occupied by A. J. Brooks. He was a son of Hiram and Lydia Boardman Earle. He spent his early life in Morristown, and on Feb 28, 1854 was united in marriage to Ermina Harriet Bacon, daughter of Simeon and Judith Bacon, of Vershire, Vt. . In the fall of 1855 they went to Minnesota, before the state was admitted to the union. He resided in Minnesota for four and one half years and was made a Mason there, returning east before the war broke out. He enlisted in the War of the Rebellion as a private in Co. C. 6th Vt. Volunteers on August 10, 1863. He was wounded at the Battle if Cedar Creek and was in the hospital a long time. He was mustered out of the service on May 22, 1865. For a number of years Mr. Earle lived in Hyde Park and Wolcott.

He went west again about 30 years ago, and resided in Hartford, Michigan, for some time, in which place his father died at the age of 88 years. Mr & Mrs Earle returned east about 13 years ago, and in 1899 bought the L. L. Laraway farm in the south part of town, where they have since resided. Mr. Earle was an upright industrious citizen, and had a large number of friends, who will regret his demise. Besides a widow, who is 77 years of age, he is survived by one brother, Hiram A. Earle of Chicago, one sister Mrs Olive Gilbert, of this place, two sons George F. and Charles W. Earle of this plave, and one daughter Mrs. Rodney Beany, of Chicago.
