Obituary

At 9 o'clock, Wednesday night, Aug. 1st, Mr. George Walbridge entered into rest at the age of 49 years and 8 months. He had been very ill for some time with neuralgia of the heart, complicated with other troubles, but at the last, he passed away very suddenly while his daughter was supporting him in her arms. He was born in Strafford and had lived many years in the West, but for the past twelve years he was a well-respected citizen of this place. He served during the war, having enlisted in Company H, 3rd Rhode Island Cavalry, and was badly wounded in a skirmish by being shot through the lung. The funeral service was held Friday morning at his late home on Central street, the Rev. Seward Robson, pastor of the Baptist church, officiating, and was attended by U. S. Grant Post, G.A.R., of which the deceased was a member. He left a widow, one daughter, and a sister, Mrs. B. F. Chadwick, for whom much sympathy is expressed in their great sorrow. Mr. And Mrs. Fairbanks, the parents of Mrs. Walbridge, and her three brothers, Louis, George and Wallace Fairbanks - from Springfield, also Chester R. Walbridge of Sharon, were present at the funeral.
