Obituary

ALFRED H. BATCHELDER

Alfred Hilas Batchelder, 85 years old, and a life long resident of Bradford, died at his home here on Tuesday, September 23, after two weeks illness with bronchitis. He was a veteran of the Civil War and was long prominent in the Grand Army of the Republic. He was one of the few survivors of Washburn Post, of which only four former members of that now defunct chapter, are still living.

Mr. Batchelder took an active part in the town civic and social affairs from the time he returned from service in the army, until advanced age halted his usual activities. He enlisted as a volunteer in Co. G, Ninth Vermont Infantry in June 1861 and was in the service until 1863.

Mr. Batchelder was born in Topsham June 30, 1845, and at an early age came to this town, where all during his adult and active years he was a prosperous farmer. On May 2, 1867 he married Mary Ellen Brown, of this place, who survives him with four children. Mrs. F. B. Hunkins, of Somerville, Mass.; Mrs. H. E. Whitten, also of Somerville, A. Ernest Batchelder and Herbert H. C. Batchelder of this town.

The funeral was held from the late home here this Friday afternoon and the Rev. B. M. Smith will be the officiating clergyman. Interment will be in the cemetery on the Upper Plain.
