Obituary

PEACHAM
John H. Stevenson

The death of John Hinman Stevenson occurred Monday, Feb. 22, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. John Ricker in St. Johnsbury where he had been living for the past year. Although he had been confined to his bed for six months on account of lameness and other troubles due to his advanced age, the end came unexpectedly. He was seriously ill only two days.

He was born in Barnet, Feb. 1, 1835, the son of William and Jeannette (Gilfillan) Stevenson. The other children in the family were William, Margaret, Robert, Henry, Mary Thomas and James. Mr. Stevenson married Miss Sarah Livingston of Peacham. One daughter, Alice, was born. She died July 22, 1885.

Mr. Stevenson enlisted from Barnet, Sept. 16, 1862, as a private in Co. F, 15th Regiment, Vermont Volunteer Infantry and was mustered into service Oct. 22, 1862 under Capt. Xerxes C. Stevens for nine months. He participated in the battles of Fairfax, Catletts and Gettysburg, was in Mount Pleasant Hospital in Washington and honorably discharged at Brattleboro, Aug. 5, 1863. He was a member of X. C. Stevens Post G.A.R.

He leaves one brother, James Stevenson of East Peacham; three nieces, Mrs. A. B. Mason of Augusta, Me, Mrs. Mary Craig and Mrs. Rodney Astle of Peacham; two nephews, William J. McLaren of Barnet and David Stevenson, now in Tallahassee, Fla. Mr. Stevenson was possessed of more than usual business ability and carried on a grocery business for a good many years at East Peacham, Barnet, Waterford, Littleton, N.H., and last at Harvey's Hollow in Danville. He was honest in his business dealings with all and expected the same principles from those with whom he dealt. He loved music and could play the old tunes on his violin with great skill. He was at St. Cloud, Fla., for seven winters making his last trip there the fall after his 86th birthday.

The funeral was held Wednesday, Feb. 24 at Barnet Center church. The Rev. W. A. Warner officiated. Mrs. Charles Choate sang two selections. The bearers were W. J. McLaren, Stuart Stevenson, Rodney Astle and Albert Peak. Burial was at Barnet Center cemetery with the G.A.R. service at the grave. The flowers were carnations from the W. R. C., calla lillies from the family and carnations from Mr. and Mrs. W. J. McLaren. Those from out of town to attend the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. James Stevenson, Mr. and Mrs. Ridney B. Astle, Millen Farrow, Milton Farrow, Mrs. George Smith, Mrs. F. T. Churchill, Albert Peak, and Herbert Blair, all of Peacham; John Harvey, Mr. and Mrs. Stuart Stevenson and Mr. and Mrs. W. J. McLaren all of Barnet.
