John Lombard, one of the town’s most respected citizens, died suddenly at about 11 o’clock Saturday morning at his home on Main street, presumably of heart disease. He was born in Guilford, Me., February 4, 1837. Mr. Lombard came to Ludlow about 19 years ago from Cambridge, Mass., and had been several times honored with offices of trust. His wife died in the summer of 1894. The only remaining member of the family is Effie P. Lombard, a niece, who has lived in the family from infancy. He was a Union veteran. He enlisted in company F, 6th regiment, Maine volunteers, March 14, 1862. He took part in the battle of Williamsburg and the seven days’ fight from Savage Station to Harrison’s Landing. He was sunstruck in the peninsular campaign, paralyzing his left side, from which he never recovered. He was an enthusiastic Grand Army man, was a member of O. O. Howard post, a past commander and delegate from this department to the national encampment at Louisville, Ky., in September. He was also a member of Black River lodge of Masons. The funeral was conducted Monday by O. O. Howard post and the Masonic lodge did escort duty. Rev. H. O. Maxham preached the sermon. Among those from out of town were N.C.
