Obituary

Elias O. Wormell

Elias O. Wormell died at 9:30 last evening at his home at 17 Grant street after a wasting illness of two and a half months. The funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon, with prayers by Rev. C. J. Staples at the residence at 2 o'clock followed by burial at Lake View cemetery under Masonic auspices.

Mr. Wormell was born in Saco, Maine, October 31, 1844. He enlisted in the 10th Maine volunteers in October 1861, and served with credit, suffering a wound in the wrist at Antietam and a wound in the abdomen from a fragment of a shell at Winchester. While in hospital he contracted crysipelas, which settled in his eyes and ultimately Oct. 7, 1889, caused total blindness, from which he suffered to the day of his death.

Mr. Wormell came to Burlington about 1870 and until incapacitated by blindness followed the occupation of photographer.

He was a member of Post Stannard, G. A. R., of Burlington, Lodge No. 105, F. and A. M., and of Burlington chapter No. 3, R. A. M.

He is survived by a wife and by two brothers, the latter living respectively in Maine and Massachusetts.
