Death of Two of Town's Oldest Residents Occurred Last Week
Samuel D. King, aged 68 years, suffered a stroke of apoplexy Wednesday, August 17, from which he died the same night. Not returning after going after the cows, a search resulted in finding him unconscious in the pasture. He never regained consciousness. The son of Phillip and Mary (Dole) King, he enlisted in the 12th regiment, Vermont volunteers, and was discharged July 14, 1863, after which he was in the quartermaster's department until the close of the war. Since the war he has lived in Northfield. May 3, 1865, he married Mary Hadley, who survives him wit one son, the latter, Charles, now living in Bridgewater, Mass. He is also survived by four brothers, Nathaniel, George and Moses of this town and Harvey of Boston. Rev. George F. Fortier, pastor of the Universalist church, officiated at the funeral, which was held Saturday. Burial was in Elmwood cemetery.
