Obituary

Death of Alexander Stevenson

Mr. and Mrs. A. B. Gay, Mrs. Margaret Gay and Mrs. J. A. Gould were at Northfield Falls yesterday at the funeral of a relative, Alexander Stevenson, who died in Globe, Ariz., Oct. 27.

Mr. Stevenson, whose hoe was in Stockton, Cal., came East the 8th of September with the body of his brother, William, who passed away at Los Angeles, Cal., in which place he had been seeking to improve his health. A cousin, Justin Stevenson of Los Angeles, accompanied Alexander on the sad journey to Vermont and after the burial of William at Northfield Falls they came to Randolph, where Alexander had been for some time a sojourner in the summer of 1913, making his headquarters at the French boarding house. Sept. 21 the cousin started West again and at Globe, William's place of residence, stopped to attend to business connected with the settlement of his estate. There Alexander was taken ill Saturday, the 24th ult., and died the following Tuesday from the weakness of advanced age.

He was born in Barnet in December, 1843. When a boy he went to Northfield Falls to live and was educated in the Northfield schools. At the outbreak of the Rebellion he enlisted in the 15th Vermont Regiment of Volunteers, and served until the close of the war. He did not return to Vermont but went West to spend the reminder of his life in Arizona and California. He was the last of his father's family and left no nearer relatives than cousins.

Justin Stevenson turned East once more on a melancholy errand and arrived in Northfield Sunday night with the body of the cousin who had been his companion in a similar trip so short a time before. The funeral was held in the church at the Falls yesterday afternoon with burial in the cemetery there. Rev. J. R. Gates, pastor of the Methodist church, officiated.
