Obituary

ASCUTNEYVILLE
LEONARD H. BAILEY

In the death of Mr. Bailey Vermont loses another of its staunch civil war veterans. The deceased was so to say, a well man, till about three weeks ago, when the January thaw set in, while working hard mid water and ice he contracted a cold which settled in his weakest spot, developing into cystitis which resulted in his death, February 22, 1910. Leoanrd Bailery was born in Chester, Vt., August 30, 1838. As a young man he came to Proctorsville where he married Mary Thomas with whom he had three daughters who all died young. Having served as a nine months' man in the civil war, he came in 75 to Weathersfield and had charge of the town farm four years, then owing to the frail health of his wife, he left and bought the grist mill in Ascutneyville which he has run successfully ever since. In 1898, having buried his wife, he married Blanche H. Clemitson an English lady who survives him. A couple years later he united with the Congregational church and has ever since experienced the blessings of the Christian life. He had all the characteristics of a fine soldier, fearless and brave, a man of character, and judgment, hospitable and social of cheerful, sunny disposition, leading an ideal, happy daily life in his home he loved so well. Our hearts go out in tender sympathy toward his wife who finds herself so suddenly bereaved. Funeral services at late residence Saturday, February 26, at one o'clock p. m., and Revs Charles Echerbecker and James Siever officiating. The interment in Ascutneyville cemetery. "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God."
