Body of Capt. C. D. Williams Brought Here for Interment

The remains of Capt. Carlos D. Williams, whose death occurred in Burlington Friday, were brought to Northfield Monday noon and buried in their family lot in Elmwood cemetery, the Rev. F. M. DeForest, rector of St. Mary's Church, conducting the burial services. A delegation from Norwich University corps of cadets acted as pallbearers. Members of William Boynton Post, Sons of Veterans, acted as an escort. The Sons of Veterans' Post is named in honor of Mr. Williams. Those to accompany the body here were Mrs. Williams, wife of the deceased; two sons, George Williams of New York city and Cary Williams of Rosemont, Pa., and daughters, Mrs. Alice Rumbaugh of Kansas, and Mr. and Mrs. Williams of Woodstock. Captain Williams was a former resident of Northfield. During the Civil War he enlisted in Company F, 13th Vermont, and was a first lieutenant when mustered out of the service. He returned to Northfield and entered the drug business. Mr. Williams was appointed captain of the State militia while in Northfield, a title he held during the remainder of his life. Mr. Williams married Mary Elizabeth Woodbury, daughter of the late William Woodbury. To this union were born two children, George and Lottie, who survive their father. Three years after the death of his wife he married Ellen M. Thayer of Northfield, one son, Cary P. Williams, both of whom survive.
