FLAG PLACED IN COFFIN

At Funeral of C.S. Larkin, a Civil War Veteran

Neighbors and other friends joined relatives in paying tribute to the memory of Charles S. Larkin, a veteran of the war between the states, whose death at his home, 103 South Main street, occurred suddenly Tuesday afternoon. The funeral was held at the house Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. James Ramage, pastor of the East Barre Congregational church, officiating. Patriotic orders represented at the service included R.B. Crandall post, No. 56, G.A.R., and Col. J.B. Meade circle, ladies of the G.A.R. Members of the Grand Army, with which the deceased was affiliated, acted as honorary bearers, the escort being composed of B.P. Willey, John T. Averill, George W. Hut, A.S. Parkhurst, Nathan Harrington, George I. Beckley and Albert wood. The bearers were relatives of Mr. Larkin, as follows: Maynard L. Kiser of Schenectady, N.Y., Fred Curtis of Newport, N.H., and Harley D. Stevens, sons-in-law, Fred E. Cutts, Charles Peake and Jesse Phelps, nephews of the deceased. One of the impressive features of the service was the flag ceremony, in which Mrs. Abbie S. Willey, representing the ladies of the G.A.R., placed a silken f stars and stripes across the folded hands of the deceased soldier. There were many floral tributes.

Interment was made in the family lot at Hope cemetery.
