Sargent Whipple, who died last week Wednesday, moved from Lisbon, N.H., into this town more than 30 years ago. He was one of the proprietors of the so-called Whipple saw mill in town, and as a townsman was regarded as an upright man, square and honorable, and accommodating in his dealings. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. M. Atwood at the house on the 5th, and were attended by D. Rattery Post, G.A.R., as Mr. Whipple was a member of that body. He leaves a wife, one son and one daughter.
