Obituary

LIEUT. G. M. Carpenter.

Death at Cabot Yesterday Afternoon of a Civil War Veteran.

Cabot, Aug. 10. - Lieutenant George M. Carpenter died yesterday afternoon at his home in this place of heart disease. He was born in Marshfield 68 years ago and spent his early life in that place. Shortly after his marriage he removed to Cabot and had been a resident ever since. Lieut. Carpenter served through the Civil war, having enlisted the 9th Vermont regiment. His wife died a year ago, and three children survive him, Howard, Glen and Jennie of this place. A niece is Mrs. William Clapp of Barre Town. The funeral was held this afternoon and the interment was in the Cabot cemetery.
