Obituary

Forty Years a Barber in Montpelier

Oughtny Jangraw, aged 74 years, for 40 years the owner of a barber shop in Montpelier, died Saturday afternoon following an illness of many months caused by a general breakdown.

The deceased was born in St. Pie, Que., December 17, 1852. He enlisted during the second year of the Civil War from Bangor, Me., and served until the close. He went to Montpelier a few years later and until six years ago, when his health began to fail, he conducted a barber shop being located in the old Rialto building on State st., which burned four years ago.

He was elected alderman from his ward three times, first serving in 1895. In addition he was on the board of bailiffs in 1883 and was for several years a member of the Republican city committee. He belonged to Brooks Post, G.A.R. Beside his wife, he is survived by three sons, Alexander and Joseph Jangraw, of Barre, and Stanley, of Montpelier, and three daughters, Mrs. Lucy Cady, of Montpelier, and Mrs. T.J. Kennedy, and Mrs. Joseph Ricciarelli, of Barre. Two brothers also survive, Frank, of Montpelier, and Joseph, of Portland, Me.
