Hiram F. Raymore



Frank Hiram Raymore died at his late home at Eden Saturday, June 11th, of heart disease. He had been in poor health since last February, but was not seriously ill until about four weeks before his death. He was born in Eden April 21, 1845, on his fathers farm, now owned by James Hutchins. He was the last of a family of nine children, born to the late Roswell and Marchia (Smith) Raymore,

In August, 1863, at 18 years of age, he enlisted in the army and served as member of Co. I, 3rd Vt, in the Civil War and was discharged July, 1865. He also served a number of years in the regular army. After returning to Vermont he followed the carpenter's trade for several years.

In 1880 he married Mrs Welthis (Hadley) Alden, who survives him, and with the exception of a few years, they have resided on the Hadley farm, where he made many improvements. He represented the town of Eden, in the Legislature in 1896, and had filled the office of town clerk, moderator, selectman, school director, &c. At the time of his death he was serving as selectman.

Smith. and Mrs. Ellen Harrington of Eden, nieces, and W.E, Hoyt of Cambridge, nephew, also three nephews and a niece in Missouri.

The funeral was held Tuesday, June 14th from his late home, the Rev R.F. Cady officiating. The bearers were F.E. Smith, William J. Atwell, Frank Sargent, and Earl Gray. Interment was in Eden Cemetery.
