His wife, son and a married daughter living at Fitchburg, Mass., survive him. His demise will be mourned greatly, not only by them but also by a wide circle of friends and acquaintances. His native place was Grafton, Vermont.
The funeral has been appointed for Wednesday morning, at 10 o’clock, from the Island residence.
