Obituary

Death of Paul S. Willis

Paul S. Willis, 75, died of heart disease at his home at 5 Highland street about 4:30 Wednesday morning. He had been in feeble health several years, but had been confined to his house but about 10 days. Mr. Willis was one of five children of Caleb Willis and was born in Winchester, N.H., Jan. 6, 1830. When he was about a year old the family moved to East Alstead, N.H., and from that town Mr. Willis enlisted in Company B, 14th New Hampshire Regiment, serving three years. He returned to East Alstead and went from there to Langdon. While living in Langdon he married Elsie E. Howe of Grafton, Nov. 24, 1867. They lived in Langdon two years, in Winchester 11 years, in East Westmorland 11 years and in Westminster four years, coming to Brattleboro 10 years ago next month.. His occupation was that of a sawyer and farmer, but for several years he had no steady employment, on account of ill health. He was a member of Segdwick post, G.A.R. of Brattleboro and was on the government pension list. Besides his wife and one daughter, Eva S. Willis of Brattleboro, Mr. Willis leaves a son and daughter by a former marriage. They are Frank H. Willis of Phillipston, Mass., and Ida M. Burroughs of East Alstead. He also leaves one brother, Samuel Willis of East Alstead. His first wife was Maria Tyler of Marlow, N.H. Rev. H.A. Goodhue offered prayer at the house at 9:30 o'clock this morning and the body was taken to Bellows Falls for burial.
