Obituary

ROXBURY
Body of E. W. Wetmore, Former Resident, Brought Here for Burial.

The remains of Estha W. Wetmore were brought here Monday from his late home in Keene, N. H., for burial in the family lot in the Roxbury cemetery. He had been a resident of Keene for more than twenty-five years. Previous to that he was a respected citizen of this town and held several important town offices while a resident here.

Mr. Wetmore was born in Brandon Jan. 16, 1842, and enlisted in Co. C, 12th Vermont regiment, before he was 21 years of age. He was a member of the John Sedgwick post, G.A.R., of Keene. Although 85 years of age, he was very well preserved and was ill only about a week. His children were all here for the burial. Those present were Mr. and Mrs. Fred Wetmore, Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Brooks, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Ramsdell, Cassius and Gus Wetmore, all of Keene, N. H.
