Obituary

Death of Oscar E. Crosby

Oscar E. Crosby died at Bradford July 3, aged seventy-one years. He had just returned from the G. A. R. Meeting and sat down in a chair to rest, and upon his daughter-in-law returning to the room discovered that he had passed away. He had suffered from hardening of the arteries for some time. He leaves two sons, Eddy, who lived with him since the death of Mrs. Crosby and Fred of Bellows Falls, and several grandchildren.

The funeral was held at the Congregational church Saturday at 2 p. m., with A. E. Hale in charge, and Rev. J. L. Alexander officiating. There was a large body of G. A. R. And W. R. C. members present. Those from out of town in attendance were his son, Fred of Bellows Falls, Mrs. Hannah Comstock and Edith Comstock of Corinth, also a sister from Massachusetts and his adopted daughter from Montpelier.

Mrs. Addie Rowell Crosby, his wife, died last September, since which time his son, Eddy, and wife have lived in his home.
