Obituary

CIVIL WAR MAN GONE
Harry M. Densmore of East Street Died in Winooski

The death of Harry M. Densmore of 202 East street occurred at 10:30 last night, at the home of his son in Colchester, where he had gone on a visit several days prior to New Year's. Death was due to a complication of diseases growing out of heart trouble. Mr. Densmore's death came unexpectedly. Besides his wife, he leaves three daughters, Mrs. A. N. Troup, Mrs. George Collamer and Miss Pearl Densmore of Barre, and three sons, William Densmore of this city, Carl and Frank Densmore of Colchester.

Mr. Densmore had been a resident of Barre for the past eighteen years. He was born in Colchester about sixty-five years ago, and there he passed the greater part of his early life. When the Civil war broke out in'61, he enlisted and saw considerable service in those trying times. The deceased was known among his friends as possessing a quiet and retiring disposition. He attended the Methodist church until ill health compelled him to remain indoors much of the time. The body will be brought to this city tomorrow. The funeral arrangements have not been made, but the burial will take place in Hope cemetery.
