Obituary

TO BURY VETERAN
Body of William Mandigo, Last of Bellows Falls G.A.R., Is Brought Home

BELLOWS FALLS, Feb. 4. - Flags upon public and school buildings, places of business and many private residences, were displayed here today when the remains of William L. Mandigo, last member of the local G.A.R. Post, reached here at noon from Philadelphia, accompanied by the family of his son, with whom he was visiting when he died Tuesday night.

A military escort of 40 members of Company E, V. N. G., and 50 members of the local American Legion escorted the body to the Fenton & Hennessey funeral parlors, from which the funeral will be held Sunday at 2:30. It is to be a full military funeral, with interment in the family lot in Oak Hill cemetery.

The body is lying in state until Sunday and is being viewed by large numbers of friends. In addition to his war record, he had a son, Pearl H., who served in the Spanish American War; another son, Bardell E. and grandson, Albert Rowell in the World War; and another grandson, Lewis Rowell, now in the regular army.
