After a long period of failing health, Joseph Mayville died yesterday afternoon of senile decay, at the age of 86 years, at the home of his son, Wallace Mayville, on the Fairfield road, where he had resided for the past 18 years.

He enlisted in the Civil War from Malone, N.Y., Dec. 2, 1861, at the age of 22 years, in Co. H, 98th regiment, serving in the most important battles of the war, and being mustered out Dec. 3, 1864. On his return from the war, Mr. Mayville was united in marriage to Philina Hero.

Twenty-seven years ago, Mr. And Mrs. Mayville came to Vermont, locating first in South Royalton, and after two or three years thence came to Barre to reside, the rest of their lives being spent here or in neighboring towns. During the last years of their lives Mr. Mayville lived with his son on the Plainfield road and Mrs. Mayville with her daughter, Nellie (Mayville) Blair on Branch street, Barre, until the latter's death, and then with her son, Joseph Mayville, jr., also on Branch street, dying at the home of the latter about eight years ago.

Mr. Mayville left two sons, Wallace, at whose home he died, and Joseph of Barre, also one stepson, Fred Hero of East Barre. A sister, Ann Laury still lives in Ellenburg, N.Y., so far as known, she is 88 years old.
