Obituary

WESTMORE --- Deacon John Hunt, a much respected citizen of this town, died Friday last of inflammation of the bowels. He had been a resident of this town for many years and had always been respected for his honesty, and love for his kindness and benevolence.

He was a member of Co. F., 3d Vt. Regiment, and received a severe wound at Spotsylvania, from which he suffered till the day of his death. He was a member of Mason Post, G.A.R., and was buried by his comrades, who gathered in large numbers to participate in the beautiful burial ceremonies of the order. The funeral was held at his late residence on Sunday, Aug. 31, and rarely have we seen so large number in attendance at a burial service., Rev. S. S. Brigham preached a very appropriate discourse. Great sympathy was manifested for the stricken family, and the sudden death casts gloom our entire community.

Mrs. Hunt and family extend their heartfelt thanks to the many who have aided them in the sickness and burial of their beloved.
