Obituary

John S. Eaton, 85, for over half a century actively identified with Woodstock's public life, died at his home Tuesday night of pneumonia. He was a familiar figure on the street up to two years ago when he gave up the office of town treasurer which he held for many years. He was prominent in Masonic circles and was the oldest past master of Woodstock lodge.
