Dr. Rollin C. Ward

Dr. Rollin C. Ward, 75 years old, a native of Rutland, died suddenly at the home of his niece, Mrs. Dunnett, wife of United States District Attorney Alexander Dunnett, of St. Johnsbury. Doctor Ward had been in his usual health. The day before his death the Dunnetts entertained Gov. Allen B. Fletcher and Judge Frank Fish and Dr. Ward was the life of the party.

In 1861 Doctor Ward enlisted from Rutland and gave three years' distinguished service to his country. After the war he returned to Orwell and studied medicine, later marrying Miss Lucy Cushman, daughter of Doctor Cushman, with whom he studied medicine.

He practiced his profession in Northfield, Shoreham, Massachusetts, and East Orange, N. J. He retired some years ago in New Brunswick, N. J. Six years ago he went to St. Johnsbury to live with his niece.

The body was taken to Orwell for burial.
