Alonzo Ewens

Alonzo Ewens, aged 74 yrs. And 10 months, a veteran of the Civil War, passed away Thursday, January 5th. Although in failing health for many months, yet very few realized that death was so near.

Alonzo L. Ewens and Ida E. Burroughs were married Mar. 1, 1875 and for the greater part of the time made their home in this town. To them were born six children, four of whom are still living; George and Willie E. and Mrs. Lilla Belrose of Island Pond and Mrs. Ethel Danforth of Berlin, N. H. For many months Mr. Ewens had been unable to go but little from home on account of failing health, and there thru all the months of suffering he had been tenderly cared for by Mrs. Ewens.

Mr. Ewens was a kind husband and father, a man honest in his dealing with others, always ready to help those in trouble or less fortunate than himself. He will be greatly missed by a large circle of friends and relatives. Much sympathy is expressed for the family in their bereavement.

The funeral was held at the home Saturday afternoon, Rev. M. L. Ames of Holland, officiating. The floral offerings were many and beautiful.

Interment was in the cemetery at the Center.
