Obituary

Frederick W. Steele died at his residence at the Center, Wednesday morning, after an illness of several months. The funeral was from his late residence Saturday afternoon in charge of Capt. J. L. Moseley; Rev. E. C. Downey was the officiating clergyman. Interment was made in the cemetery at the Center. A profusion of beautiful floral s surrounded the casket. Some 30 members of William H. Boynton Post, G. A. R., attended the last rites over the body of their departed comrade. The surviving relatives are a brother, S. W. Steele and two daughters, Mrs. Elon Goodenough of South Walden and Miss Esther A> Steele, who remained at home and cared for her father during his last illness. Mr. Steele was born in Northfield, April 23rd, 1838. While quite a young man he enlisted with company F, Vt Volunteers. After returning from the war he did light farming. His character was such as he to make him the possessor of many warm friends, who with regret for the past two years have noted his failing health. Among those from out of town in attendance upon the funeral were Dr. C. W. Steele of Barre and Dr. F. M. Steele of Gaysville.
