Obituary

The remains of Henry V. Severance, late of California were brought here for burial Wednesday. He has lived in California for the last 11 years and was an old resident of the town. While he lived here he was a much respected citizen and a member of the church, and an ardent worker for it. He was a Civil War veteran, a corp. sergeant of the 8th Vt. Regiment. Rev. E. E. Grant conducted the services at the grave and spoke very feelingly of his life among the people here and also of his helpfulness to him when he was pastor of the church here. Nearly all of the older members of the church have passed to their reward in the past 18 years. The remains were accompanied by Mr. Severance's son, Perley. He reports that his mother's health is not very good at present. Perley is stopping with friends in East Burke for a few days and will visit friends here before he returns home.
