Death of Alden Boyce
The death of Mr. George Alden Boyce occurred May 15 in the 79th year of his age. The funeral was from his late home, where he had lived for the past 33 years.
In the neighborhood he was familiarly known as Uncle Alden. He was a soldier of the Civil war, serving in Co. B, 11th Vermont. He came to West Brookfield with his parents, George and Elmira Howe Boyce, in 1850 and has lived in this vicinity since. He married Clara Evans of Braintree. Of their two sons, the oldest died in 1897. The youngest has been the father's companion and assistant in caring for the semi-invalid wife and mother till her death in 1907, since which time they have lived together.
Three years ago Mr. Boyce became ill. While not confined to the bed he has been a great sufferer. For the past eleven moths he required the care of a nurse, as well as his son, who has spared no effort to relieve his sufferings, and has the sympathy of his neighbors. Mr. and Mrs. Boyce had the post office in our little village nearly ten years. If health had allowed all would have been glad to have had them there longer.
Those from out of town at the funeral were his brother, Henry Boyce; Orin and Miss Georgia Mann, his grandson and granddaughter; Miss Sadie Boyce, Mr. Colt's people, Mr. and Mrs. Orza Boyce, Mrs. Azro Boyce and daughter.
The flowers that were contributed by the relatives, neighbors and friends were very beautiful.
Much sympathy is extended to his daughter, Mrs. Ida Mann of Boston, who was unable to attend the funeral.
