Obituary

John Gravelin, aged 56 years, died on Saturday last, his disease resulting from a rheumatic trouble that had afflicted him for a few years past. He was a native of St. Ours, P. Q., and his father was Peter Gravelin. In 1850 he lived at Jonesville, near Clinton, Mass., and there he married Miss Pilna Brothers. Soon afterward they removed to Montpelier, where for several years deceased drove the express-wagon in the early part of Col. H. D. Hopkins' agency, subsequently running a truck team, and quite recently dealing in wood and coal. Mr. Gravelin leaves a widow, four daughters, and a son, Mrs. Fred Emmons, Mrs. George Allen, Lizzie, Ella and Napoleon, all natives of and residing in Montpelier. The funeral took place from St. Augustine's Church on Tuesday afternoon.
