Alonzo Busby Died at Age of 90.
Alonzo Busby died at his home on Castle hill, in this town, Oct. 12, after having suffered from hardening of the arteries and heart trouble two years. He was born in Petersburg, N.Y., in 1831, a son of Ira and Hannah (Macomber) Busby. He first married Miss Sarah Mason, daughter of Henry Mason of Whitingham, with whom he lived about eight year. On April 26, 1871, he married Miss Katie Mead of Williamstown, Mass., who survives. To them were born four sons and two daughters, of whom all but one survive. A daughter, Mrs. Flora Eckler, died at the age of 25 years. Those living are Marcus A. And Edgar D. of Wilmington, Sylvenus J. And Proctor S. of Whitingham, and Mrs. Stella Diane of Waterbury, Conn. Mr. Busby was a Civil war veteran, having served about a year as a private in the 30th company, unattached heavy artillery. He came from Whitingham to Wilmington to live in George Coxson's tenement house on Castle hill just three months previous to his death. The funeral was held at the home Oct. 14 at 1 o'clock, Rev. J. P. Dorst, pastor of the Baptist church in Whitingham, officiating. The burial took place in Whitingham, where Mr. Busby lived about 45 years.
