Funeral at St. Peter's Church Saturday Afternoon.
The funeral of the late Albert A. Norton, who died Wednesday night at Vermont Soldiers' home, will be held at St. Peter's Church Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Members of the local post, G.A.R. will conduct the service at the grave in the village cemetery.
Mrs. Elizabeth Norton, daughter-in-law of the deceased and with whom he had lived for many years, and Marshall Clapp arrived here Thursday afternoon to attend the funeral.
In the annals of Bennington the Norton family has ever occupied a prominent place, prominent in military, social, and business affairs, and several descendents of the original stock still live here. The Bennington pottery, conducted by the Nortons, was, in the days previous to the Civil war, one of the principal industries, and its production had a large sale in Vermont and the neighboring states. The buildings, though now vacant, still stand on Park street near the river. The father of the deceased conducted a livery stable on the site where the Bewster block now stands, at the corner of North and Pleasant streets and he often had 60 horses in his stable. He was also interested in a line of stages between Bennington and Brattleboro, and the son was for some years a driver.
