This community was greatly shocked by the very sudden death of Henry Baker last Wednesday. He was in his usual health, apparently, in the morning, but was taken suddenly ill and died about noon. He will be greatly missed. He was a kind husband and father. He is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Geo Baker of Ludlow and three brothers and sister. The funeral was held at his late residence Saturday afternoon, Rev. W. J. Ballou of Ludlow officiating.
