Death of A.E. Mehuron Removes Man Loved and Respected By All.
Funeral services of Allen E. Mehuron were held Sunday a t 1 p.m. at his late residence. The officiating clergyman was Rev. Isaac Mellor, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church, of which Mr. Mehuron was a lifelong member. The Masonic burial service was used, D.R. Bisbee giving the Master Mason's part. About 40 Masons of Mad River lodge, No. 77, to which Mr. Mehuron belonged, marched in a body. Music was furnished by a quartet from the Methodist church, composed of Mrs. I. Mellor, Miss Edna Bragg, W.C. Bragg and J.C. Kingsbury, with Mrs. J.C. Kingsbury accompanist. The selections sung were, “Playle's hymn and “ We Are Going Down the Valley, ” the latter sung at the request of the deceased.
Ainsworth post, No. 36, G.A.R., of which Mr. Mehuron was commander, was represented by Wells Palmer, Judson Richardson, Henry Miner and Captain Henry N. Bushnell.
Interment was in the family lot in Irasville cemetery, the pall bearers, six in number, being Edward H. Jones, George W. Wallis, Fred F. Wilder, Charles J. Greene, Walter E. Jones and E.R. Prentiss. Allen E. Mehuron was born May 1, 1838 in Hinesburg, living for many years in Fayston and later in Waitsfield. Jan. 2, 1865 he married Margaret Maxwell, who died in June 1917. He served in the Civil War as private in Co. G, 6th Vermont Volunteers. For the past year Mr. Mehuron had been in failing health. The Sunday before his death he attended church as usual. He was confined to his bed only a few days and died Friday morning, March 1, the cause being ulcer of the stomach.
He is survived by three children – Mattie, wife of Jesse W. Canerdy of Waterbury; Jennie, widow of the late Edwin Perrin, and Thomas A. Mehuron, with whom he resided. There are also eight grandchildren – Helen, Charles and Herbert Canerdy, the latter being with the expeditionary forces in France; Ruth and Elmer Mehuron; Lloyd Harold and Gladys Perrin.
The funeral was largely attended in spite of the raging wind. Those attending from out of town were Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Canerdy, Helen and Charles Canerdy of Waterbury, Mrs. Jennie Perrin and daughter, Miss Gladys, of Worcester, Mass., Mrs. Elizabeth Maxwell Funk of Mattapan, Mass., Judson Richardson of Warren and Henry Miner of Montpelier.
Mr. Mehuron, a man of sterling qualities, will be greatly missed by all who knew him and his place in church, community, Masonic and G.A.R. circles can never be filled. Old and young alike will long remember his cheery words of greeting.
