Obituary

WHITINGHAM
Death of George E. Plumb

George E. Plumb, 65, died at his home at Sherman, August 10, after an illness of seven weeks. Mr. Plumb was born in Whitingham and had spent the greater part of his life there. For 20 years previous to the building of the Hoosac Tunnel & Wilmington railroad he handled the freight traffic between Hoosac Tunnel and Readsboro and Readsboro and North Adams, but for the past few years had been engaged in the lumber business, farming and in buying and selling farm products. Mr. Plumb was a man with an exceptionally strong constitution and was possessed with a faculty of seeing through or around nearly every obstacle that arose in his path, so that he was seldom, if ever discouraged, no matter how trying the circumstances. At the time of his death he was a member of the board of selectmen, which position he had held seven years, trustee of the Whitingham library association, president of the Elgin Creamery association at Readsboro, and treasurer of Deerfield River grange of Readsboro. He was also a member of C. B. Lawton post, G.A.R. of Wilmington and a past commander of H. O. Gillett post of Whitingham, the latter post having been given up.

He is survived by three brothers and one sister, L. H. Plumb of Sherman, L. F. Plumb of Whitingham, Adin I. Plumb and Mrs. Eunice Wood of Greenfield, and by his wife, Mrs. Celestia M. Plumb and five children, Mrs. Gertrude F. Kingsley of Wilmington, Mrs. E. A. Vincent of Westminster, Mass., George W. Plumb of Greenfield and Miss Amanda E. and Harold E. W. Plumb, who live at home.
