Death of James Ryan

James Ryan died at his home in this village last Thursday morning, August 8, at two o'clock after a long and painful illness. Mr. Ryan was born in the town of Fletcher in March, 1832. He enlisted in Co. D, 2d Vermont Regiment in 1861 and though receiving two bullets in his body he remained with his regiment except while in the hospital until its discharge. In 1864 he married Miss Mary Marie Ellsworth of Fletcher and of three children born to them two are still living. They are their twin daughters, Mrs. Jennie Fisher of Lyndon and Mrs. Ellen Hill of Greensboro. Mr. And Mrs. Ryan lived together 46 years until her death two years ago last March. The family moved to this village in the fall of 1892 and this has been their home since that time. Mr. Ryan was a kind-hearted neighbor,, a good husband and father and much respected in the community. During his long illness he has been kindly and faithfully cared for by his daughter, Mrs. Fisher, who has lived with him since the death of his wife. The short funeral services were held Friday afternoon at the house and on Saturday the body was taken to Fletcher to be buried beside his wife and other relatives. Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Hill of Greensboro, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Fisher and Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Chayer of this place, accompanied the remains.
