Obituary

Eugene P. Tewksbury

Eugene F. Tewksbury, one of Woodstock's best-known and most popular residents, died at his home in this village Wednesday morning of locomotor ataxia. He was 68 years old. He had been ill for 11 years and for eight years had been unable to walk.

Mr. Tewksbury was born in Gaysville, the son of Paschal and Edie Gould Tewksbury, but came to Woodstock with his parents when very young and with the exception of a few years in Chicago he has passed his life here, a substantial and useful citizen. He was a painter by trade, and an especially good one, his headquarters being for a long time in the brick shop at the foot of Lincoln street. He was prominent in Masonry and was affiliated with Woodstock Lodge and Ottauquechee Chapter here, also with Vermont Commandery, Windsor, and the Council and Shrine.

Mr. Tewksbury married Miss Emma E. Montague about 35 years ago, who survives him, and he leaves one son, Dr. Ralph W. Tewksbury of Attleboro, Mass.

The funeral was held at the house at 3 o'clock Thursday afternoon, Rev. W. A. Leonard officiating. The burial was under Masonic auspices, the local lodge and Knights Templar attending.
