Mr. Edwards was the son of the late Lysander and Catherine Jefferson Edwards, born in Shelburne, Mass., December 27, 1846. He served in Company D, 9th Vermont Volunteers. He was twice married, first to Lydia A. Putnam, by whom he had three children. After her death, he married Lilla Allbee, who survives him.

N. E. Edwards.
N. E. Edwards, whose death was briefly mentioned last week, was operated on for appendicitis Thursday instead of Sunday. The band and members of the G. A. R. went to the home and acted as escort for the procession from the house to the Congregational church where funeral services were held, and thence to Summer Hill cemetery where the interment was made in the family lot.
Mr. Edwards was born in Charlemont, Mass. He was twice married, first to Lydia Ann Putnam, September 28, 1869, who died, and June 22, 1898, he married Lilla Allbee, who survives him, also three children by his first marriage.
The oldest son, Walter, of Bradford, was unable to be present having broken both legs in the woods, some four weeks ago.
The family and all relatives are deeply grateful for all the kindness shown by friends and neighbors, the band and the Grand Army, and for the floral tribute sent by the shopmates at the Jones & Lamson shop, the children, and Justus Dartt.
