Obituary

Death of George E. Mason

George E. Mason, one of Brookfield's oldest and most respected citizens, passed away Friday morning. He had been confined to the bed since February, suffering from hardening of the arteries.

The deceased was born in Williston 75 years ago but with the exception of about seven years, when he resided in Randolph, he spent his entire life in Brookfield. Previous to removing to Randolph, he was a farmer, but about ten years ago purchased a house in the village, where he has since resided. He was married to Miss Mary Howe of Randolph, sister of Rev. G. O. And D. D. Howe, who survives him, as do their two sons, Edward H. Of Randolph and George D. Of California, and one daughter, Mrs. E. L. Wills of this town. A brother, Herbert Mason, who lives in the West, and a sister, Mrs. A, B. Keeler of Erie, Pa., also survive.

In 1862 he enlisted in the Civil War and served two and one half years until he had an attack of typhoid fever, when he was discharged. He was a member of the local G. A. R. post, also of the local lodge of Masons.

Funeral services were held at the home Sunday at 2:45 p. m., Rev. Fraser Metzger of Randolph officiating. Burial was in Brookfield cemetery, the bearers being Albert Sargent, Fred Ralph, L. W. Morse and Henry Hyde. The Masons attended in a body. The abundance of beautiful flowers attested the esteem in which Mr. Mason was held by his friends and neighbors.

George Bradford, a nephew of the deceased, Dr. And Mrs. Myron Chandler, Mr. And Mrs. Ervin Chandler, George Chandler and Miss Mabel Chandler, all of Barre, besides members of the family from Randolph, attended the service.
