Obituary

The remains of the late J. Seeley Spaulding arrived in Burlington from Chicago Saturday morning accompanied by Mrs. Spaulding, and were taken to the residence of Mrs. Mary G. Howard, at the corner of Grant street and Elmwood avenue. The burial was in the afternoon in the Elmwood avenue cemetery, Rev. George Y. Bliss officiating. Relatives from Montpelier and Burlington, and representatives of Stannard Post, G. A. R., and Burlington Lodge, F. and A. M., and employees of the customs house were present at the services. There was a choice display of floral tributes, among which was a wreath from Kenwood Lodge, F. and A. M., of Chicago.
