Death of Daniel H. Marsh

The death of Daniel H. Marsh, 59, took place Monday. The immediate cause of death was Bright's disease, but he had been ill several years with a complication of diseases. Mr. Marsh was a son of Joseph and Lucy (Salisbury) Marsh, and was born in Guilford, living there up to the time of his enlistment in the fall of 1861 in Company F, 4th Vermont regiment. He was a brave soldier and it is related that at the battle of Lee's Mills he borrowed a gun, just after coming out of the hospital, in order to have an opportunity to fight. He returned to Guilford after the war, and nearly 30 years ago came t this town. He not only carried on his farm, but he was the owner of a brick yard which he ran many years. Mr. Marsh is survived by his wife and a son and daughter. Mrs. Marsh was Harriet McClure, daughter of Samuel McClure. Mr. Marsh was an excellent citizen, and many friends will join in extending sympathy to his family in the sorrow which his death brings to them. The funeral was held at the house Wednesday. Rev. H. D. Maxwell officiated and selections were sung by Mr. and Mrs. George Miller. The burial was in the cemetery in Weatherhead Hollow, Guilford. Mr. Marsh had requested that comrades of his old company act as bearers and Col Taylor and Messrs. Lynde, Stockwell and Bixby performed this service.
