Obituary

The many friends of Marshall Hapgood were saddened to learn of his death last Friday at Stamford, Conn. A little before six o'clock he was walking in the railroad yard toward home with a friend. A locomotive whistle sounded and his friend jumped aside, but Mr. Hapgood was struck by the locomotive of the fast express. He was thrown from the track and instantly killed, the body being badly mangled. The funeral was held at Stamford Sunday and the body was brought here Monday for burial by his wife and son-in-law. Mr. Hapgood's wife was Miss Emma Palmer of this place, and she and one daughter survive him. He was a brother of Mrs. A. E Thurber, and other brothers and sisters are living in Massachusetts and Michigan. He was born in Acton, Mass., 48 years ago last August, and lived in t hat place until the outbreak of the war, when he enlisted and served three years. Soon after the war he came to Brattleboro, and worked in Hadley's met market. Later he went to Boston and remained four or five years, but returned to Brattleboro and worked in the meat markets and at Estey's until five years ago, when he moved to Stamford. A detachment of Sedgwick post went to the depot to received the body.
