JOSEPH GREGORY DEAD.
Well Known Citizen of Williamstown and Civil War Veteran
Williamstown, Dec. 11. - Joseph Gregory, a well-known resident of this town, died at 5 o'clock this morning at his home in the village, of old age. The deceased was 77 years of age last March. He was the son of the Rev. John Gregory, a Universalist minister who was located for many years in Northfield. When a young man he entered the machine shops of the Central Vermont railroad and later became an engineer on the main line of this railroad. He was also an engineer on a western road for a few years. When the civil war broke out he enlisted and served throughout the war. After being mustered out he returned to Williamstown to carry on a farm on the west hill where he lived until about 24 years ago he purchased a home in the village. He is survived by one son, James Gregory, who resides here. The funeral will be held from the house Monday afternoon. The interment will be in the village cemetery.
