Duncan Harriman

Mr. Harriman was born at Barnett, Vt., and was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Harriman. He grew up in his native town and when a young man he located in Stoneham, Mass., where he married his first wife, who died in a few years, leaving a son and a daughter. In August, 1865, Mr. Harriman enlisted at Stoneham in Co. D, 32d Massachusetts volunteers, Col. Maggai. He served two years and three months, when his health was broken typhoid fever and he was discharged. After leaving the army he located in Meadville, Pa., where he married Lucy French. About the year 1898 he made his home in North Adams where he continued to reside till his death. He worked as a cutter in the different shoe factories here until seven years ago, when he sustained a shock of paralysis, and since that time he had not been able to work. About two years ago paresis developed and for the last year his mental faculties had failed perceptibly. He was able to be about the house till last Monday, when he took to his bed for the last time. During the remaining days his condition was such that much of the time he did not recognize any one.

Mr. Harriman was a kind and considerate husband and father and an upright and respected citizen. He was a man of quiet habits, fond of home and family, and he was highly esteemed by those who knew him. Besides his widow he leaves two children by his first wife, Edward and Delia Harriman, and four sons and three daughters by his second wife. These are Wilfred and Winfred Harriman of Rotterdam Junction, N. Y.; Frank H. Harriman of this city, Rev. Arthur Harriman of Colchester, Conn., and Florence, Lena and Maude Harriman of this city.
