Samuel N. Hastings, a life-long resident of Bridgewater, passed away Wednesday, Aug. 28Th, aged 69 years, 6 months. Funeral services were held at the home of E. J. Woods, Friday at 2 p. m., where he had made his home for the past few years, Rev. E. Graham Wilson officiating, interment in the village cemetery. The deceased leaves a wife and two daughters, Mrs. E. J. Woods of this place and Mrs. Florence Furman of Woodstock, to mourn the loss of a loving husband and father. Mr. Hastings was born in Bridgewater and has lived here practically all his life. In 1861 he enlisted in Co. C, 6th Vt. Vols., and served until the close of the war. He will be missed by his many friends as he was a man whose hand was always outstretched to the aid of anyone in need, and no one ever left his door in want that his means would allow him to aid.
