Obituary

Hiram Simpson.

Hiram Simpson of Sheffield, aged 78 years, died at the home of his granddaughter, Mrs. H. V. Drown, on Elm street, Wednesday, May 8. Mr. Simpson was a veteran of the Civil war, having enlisted in the 15th Vermont, and was a member of Quimby Post, G.A.R. He had always lived in Sheffield until within a few weeks when he came to Barton in order that he might have better medical attention. He is survived by a widow and four children, Chester Simpson of Lyndonville, Walter Simpson of Beebe Junction, Mrs. Amy Tanner of Sheffield and Mrs. Helen Brooks of Barton, also an adopted son, William Simpson of Orleans. The funeral services were held from the Drown residence on Friday afternoon, Rev. W. A. Warner officiating. The interment was at Glover. A large number of relatives and friends from Sheffield were present. The relatives wish to thank the members of Quimby Post and other friends for the beautiful flowers sent.
