Death of Thomas Huntington
Thomas Huntington died at his home at this place at 1 o'clock Monday morning, aged seventy-eight years.
The many friends of Thomas Huntington will regret to learn of his death, early Monday morning. As his illness was known to but few people, he having been about the town last week, his death comes as a shock to those who intimately acquainted with him. His illness was only of four days duration, the dread disease pneumonia being swift in its deadly work. Mr. Huntington had been a resident of Fair Haven for nearly forty years, and since his removal here had lived here continually.
He served during the civil war in Co. K, 122d New York infantry.
He was a member of the G. A. R., who conducted the funeral exercises at the Baptist church Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Rev. R. C. Penney, delivered the address. Rev. Clarence Miller assisted in the service.
Burial was in Cedar Grove cemetery. Those members of Mr. Huntington's family who survive him are: his wife, Mrs. Thomas B. Huntington, one son, Andrew Huntington, of Rutland; two daughters, Mrs. Phoebe Cook of Danby, Mrs. Jennie Bemis of Fair Haven; two sisters and two brothers, all of whom have the sympathy of the community.
