Rodney R. Lawrence

Rutland Daily Herald, Nov. 8, 1919:

Castleton Corners - After an illness of two years duration Rodney R. Lawrence of this village died at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon. He was born in Orwell March 12, 1841. Several years of his early life were passed in Salisbury. On November 20, 1861, he enlisted in Co. C., 7th Vermont serving over four years. He was mustered out as a first sergeant at Brownsville, Tex., March 14, 1866. In December 1866, Mr. Lawrence was married to Maria Clafin of Rochester, going to Hubbardton where they lived for over 40 years. He represented that town in the Legislature in 1892. He took a keen interest in all public affairs and the problems of the town, calling for his newspapers only a few hours before his death. Since the death of his wife in 1911, Mr. Lawrence has made his home with his daughter, Mrs. H.R. Bartholomew of this village. He is survived by three children, Mrs. W.J. Cook of Orange, Mass., Albert R. Lawrence of Springfield, Mass., and Mrs. Bartholomew, and one grandson, Rodney A. Lawrence of Springfield, Mass. The funeral will be held Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. H.I.[?] Nye will officiate. Burial will be in Evergreen cemetery at Center Rutland.
