Obituary

Death of A. H. McMurphy

Archibald H. McMurphy of this village died at the Randolph sanatorium last Friday night, aged 77 years, of various troubles occasioned by his exposure in the army. Mr. McMurphy enlisted in Co. G, 10th Regt., in the Civil war and was with the army till the close of the war. He saw hard service, was in the notable battle of Gettysburg and many other battles.

After the war he returned to Randolph to the ancestral home, where he lived until he moved into the Parish office, so-called, where he has lived many years. He was never married, but had always lived alone and cooked his own meals. He had not been able for several years to do manual labor to any extent. He was upright and strictly honest and conscientious in all h is dealings with his fellowmen.

The funeral was held Monday afternoon, Rev. Walter H. Bradford officiating, and the burial was in the family lot by U. S. Grant Post, G.A.R., of which he had long been a faithful member. He leaves nephews and nieces, who attended the funeral.
