Death of Abram Williamson

Abram Williamson died at his home on Seymour street at about eight o'clock Monday morning, aged 70 years and four months. Mr. Williamson was a native of Cornwall and a member of a large family, of whom three brothers and two sisters survive him. The deceased was connected with one of the Vermont regiments in the Civil War and since the war had made his home in Middlebury. He was for several years the keeper of a small store in town but branched out and for many years was a large live stock dealer with the Brighton market, Boston, as his receiving end of the line. He had in this business extensive connections and large dealings. The death of Mr. Williamson was due to a complication of diseases from which he had long suffering and from the results of which his friends were satisfied weeks ago that he could not recover. Mr. Williamson was twice married and both wives preceded him to the grave. He leaves two sons, Prof. H. Parker Williamson of the University of Chicago and Lewis Williamson of Boston. The surviving brothers and sisters are: Edson P. Williamson of Middlebury, George and Samuel Williamson of Colorado and Mrs. James T. Kingsley and Mrs. Fred W. Dutton of Northfield. The funeral was held from his late home at 2 o'clock Wednesday afternoon, with a large attendance of friends and a great profusion of flowers from the sympathizers. Rev. W. H. Washburne, pastor of the local Methodist church, officiated and made some appropriate remarks. He was assisted in the services by Rev. Geo. R. Stair of the Baptist church. The burial was in the West cemetery and the funeral cortege thereto was escorted by a guard of honor from William P Russell Post No 89, G. A. R., of Middlebury, of which the deceased was a member. The pal bearers were john E. Weeks, Frank A. Bond, William Jackson, R. G. Blinn, A. J. Marshall and William H. Thomas. Mrs. John E. Weeks sang a vert effective and pathetic solo at the house and that was the only musical part of the program. The procession to the West cemetery was a long one.
