James Marsh, who passed away Sunday night was born in 1823, being seventy-nine years of age. In 1844 he was united in marriage to Lydia, daughter of Moses and Lydia Merrill, both being natives of this town.

Mr. Marsh went to California in the time of gold fever in '49, being absent three years. On arriving home he purchased and moved into the farm occupied by him ever since. In '62mhe enlisted in the war, and received a gunshot wound in the Battle of the Wilderness of '64.

After the war he returned to the family and home. Four girls and two boys were born to Mr. and Mrs. Marsh. Only one of the whole number, the youngest, Fred surviving. Mrs. March preceded her husband to her rest only three months, she, having passed away in March last.

There should have been note that Mr. Marsh worked on the Central railroad for two years after returning from the West. Mr. Marsh had always been a hard worker, a kind husband and father, and an esteemed townsman

Funeral ceremonies were held Tuesday at his late residence, interment being in the Village cemetery. To Mr. and Mrs. Fred Marsh we would express our sympathy in their double loss within so short of time, and recommend them to the Father of Love who can heal the wounded heart.
