Obituary

Origen A. Blanchard, the well-known road commissioner, died at his home on South Main street last Thursday forenoon, after an illness of several weeks, at the age of 72. Mr. Blanchard had been road commissioner 25 years, and served the town as representative to the state legislature in 1902. His only son, Leon R., of Helena, N. Y., arrived Thursday evening. The daughter, Mrs. Alfred E. House, with her husband and children, lives in the same house in which her father and mother have been living. The funeral was held Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the house, Rev. J. Edward Wright of Montpelier officiating. Several G. A. R. comrades from Barre were present and, with the G. A. R. men of this town, escorted the remains to the village cemetery for burial.
