Death of Loren G. Kidder

The remains of Loren G. Kidder, whose death occurred in Staunton, Va., Friday, Aug. 17, after an illness of four days from pneumonia, were brought to Northfield Tuesday afternoon for burial in the cemetery at West Brookfield. The funeral was held in his late home in Staunton at the home of W. C. Mitchell. At the interment on Tuesday, the Rev. Charles E. Bingham conducted the burial services at the grave.

The deceased was born in Randolph Feb. 5, 1834, and was the last survivor of nine children, being the son of Daniel Kidder, who came to Randolph in an ox team from Deerfield, Mass., at the time of the Indian massacre.

In 1862 he enlisted in the 10th Vermont, Company G, for three moths, re-enlisting for three years and was severely wounded in the head at the battle of Mine Run.

Just before leaving for the front in 1862 he was married to Nancy G. Evans, who died October 5, 1904. Their three children all survive: - Agnes M., wife of W. O. Pride of Northfield; Hattie R., wife of Dr. C. L. Blake of Thomaston, Conn., and Harry M. Of Brooklyn, N.Y. In 1911 he was married to Ellen Douglas of Richmond, Va., who survives him. Since 1915 he had been in failing health, and had gone to Virginia from Vermont to avoid its cold winters.
