Obituary

WAS BORN IN BARRE
Clinton Keith Died in East Hardwick Last Week.

Clinton Keith, a former resident of this city and a native of Barre Town, died at his home in East Hardwick Friday and the body will be brought to this city Tuesday afternoon for interment in the Keith family lot at Elmwood cemetery. Mr. Keith's death removes the last of three brothers in a family prominent in the earlier affairs of Barre. Lewis Keith died at his home in Websterville two years ago and the demise of Erastus Keith occurred some years prior. Clinton Keith was born in 1840 and passed many years of his life in this city and vicinity. He was a long-time resident of Hardwick, however, and active in the affairs of that town. He leaves his wife and two daughters, Mrs. Charles D. Swasey of Waterbury and Mrs. Newton, the wife of a Cambridge physician. A sister, Mrs. Agnes Lovrien, lives in Chicago, Ill.
