John Hanson, who has been ill for a long time passed away Wednesday morning of last week. Nearly two months ago he and his wife came to the home of their daughter, Mrs. Burkenshire, where he was at the time of his death, and funeral services were held there Friday afternoon. The Methodist minister from Woodsville officiated. Mr. Hanson was a member of Col. Preston Post, G. A. R., and his comrades acted as bearers, and at the grave in Boltonville cemetery, where burial made, the impressive G. A. R. Burial service was held. Col. Preston W. R. C., of which Mrs. Hanson is a member, attended in a body the service at the house. The many beautiful flowers testified the respect in which the deceased was held, and expressed, the sympathy of friends for those left to mourn the memory of a devoted husband and father.
