Death of Willard Johnson.

Willard Johnson died at his home on Brattleboro street Monday night of heart disease and dropsy, after a long illness, aged 67 years. Mr. Johnson was a native of Putney, Vt., but moved to Hinsdale several years ago. About a year ago he bought the Bacon place, moving into his new home but a few months since. He had by his thrift and industry amassed a considerable property. He was a veteran of the war, having been a member of the 2d Vermont regiment. Members of Sedgwick post, G.A.R., were pall bearers at the funeral, which was held at the home, Thursday, at 9 a. m., Rev. D. L. Fisher officiating. The body was taken to Putney for burial. Mr. Johnson was a brother of Alvin J. Johnson, the publisher of Johnson's encyclopedia. He is survived by a widow and married children.
