News is received in Barre of the death of John Brassaw, until a few months ago a well known resident of Barre, who passed away in the Soldiers' home at Bennington May 22, after a lingering illness. Funeral services were held on the following day and interment was made in the soldiers' cemetery near the home. Mr. Brassaw was a veteran of the Civil war, having served in a New Hampshire regiment. At the close of the struggle he received an honorable discharge and soon afterward came to Barre, where he resided, except for a brief interval when he lived in Montpelier, until he went to Bennington last January. He was 71 years old at the time of his death. He is survived by a sister, Mrs. Ella Morgan of Manchester, N.H., and two brothers, Nelson Brassaw of Northfield and Joseph Brassaw of Claremont, N.H.
