Francis Fenn

Rutland Daily Herald & Globe, Aug. 9, 1883:

Francis Fenn - Again we are called to announce the death of one of our most respected citizens and business men, which occurred at his residence on Tuesday last at 7:30 p.m. After a painful illness of four weeks "He heard the voice of Jesus say come unto me and rest," and thus quietly passed away. He was the oldest son of Abner and Louisa Fenn; was a native of this town and had always made it his home, being at the time of his death nearly 52 years of age. His chosen profession was a pharmacist and at an early age he entered the drug house of Pond & Morse on Main street remaining in their employ, and in business for himself many years, removing in 1861 to his present location No. 13 Center Street. At the breaking out of the war he enlisted with the 1st Vermont regiment and acted as hospital steward for three months. He was a good soldier. Since the war he has been an active member of the Grand Army of the Republic; also a member of the village fire department having been treasurer of the Nickwacket Engine Company since its organization. The deceased has for many years been a communicant of Trinity church. He has been twice married, his first wife being Mary Boyce of Massena, N.Y., deceased five years since. His second union was with Etta C., daughter of the late John Spaulding, who, with his son Frederick, survives him; also a brother and sister Edward Fenn and Adaline, wife of Frank Brown, both residents of this town. Mr. Fenn was a man of generous impulses, a kind husband and indulgent father, and had many warm friends. He will be sincerely missed, not only in the home circle, but by a large number of relatives and friends who tender at this time their sympathy and consolation to the widow and son in this, their hour of bereavement.
