Obituary

Mr. Horatio C. Blake, a respected citizen of the town, having resided here for a larger part of the time for 30 years, died at his home last Saturday, at the age of 58 years, being confined to the house only five days. Mr. Blake was a veteran of the war, having enlisted in Co. E, 2d Vt. Vols. In 1861 and was discharged in 1863 on account of disability which was contracted at Chickahominy Swamp in front of Richmond, from which he had since been a great sufferer. He was an honored member of Orville Bixby post, G.A.R., in which he took a lively interest. He left a wife, two daughters and one son. Rev. S. A. Parker attended the funeral. The G.A.R. service was observed at the grave.
