Lavake Ainsworth, 85, Was Lifelong Resident of Calais

East Calais, Sept. 29. - Lavake Aisnworth, a life-long resident and much respected citizen of Calais, was found dead in his home where he lived alone on Friday morning by Levi Ainsworth. Mr. Aisnworth had been in frail health for some time but had been able to be around the house.

The selectmen, Dean Holt, Herbert Gray and Austin Cate, and health officer, Carroll J. Lamb, were called to investigate and found death was due to old age and a general breaking down. John Peck, an undertaker, was called and took the body to the funeral home at Hardwick to prepare for the burial.

Mr. Ainsworth was born in Calais April 23, 1843, the son of Horace and Betsy Ainsworth, who were also born in that town.

The body will be brought to Memorial hall in North Calais on Sunday where the funeral will be held at 1 o'clock, with burial in the Center cemetery in Calais. He is survived by one half-sister, Cordelia Ainsworth, and by one nephew, Harry Ainsworth, of Montpelier.
