South View Cemetery, Randolph, VT

Check the cemetery for location/directions and other veterans who may be buried there.


The funeral services over the remains of the late Willis W. Morton at 2 o'clock this afternoon called out an unusually large attendance of townspeople who crowded the rooms of the Morton residence on Prospect avenue. Rev. Fraser Metzger of Bethany church was the officiating clergyman and paid a just tribute to one whose decease is generally mourned. Interment was made in Southview cemetery and the bearers were Dr. G. W. Scott, E. A. Morse, A. E. Bass and E. A. Thomas. Mrs. DeWitt C. Webb and daughter, Wanda, were present from Boston, Mrs. Robert B. Morton from Montclair, N.J., Lucius Webb from East Granville and Theodore Kendall from St. Albans. The only son, Robert B. Morton, was too ill to leave his home in Montclair, N. J. U. S. Grant Post, G. A. R., attended in a body and formed an escort to the grave. Flowers were sent by the post and Relief corps and by very many friends in town and away.
