Mervin M. Brown.
The people in this community were grieved to hear of the sudden death of Mervin M. Brown, 72, which occurred Thursday afternoon, Jan. 17. He had been in declining health for some time, although he had been on the street until the Saturday before his death when he sustained a slight shock. He rallied and was about the house. A trained nurse came Monday from Brattleboro and cared for him until the end came.
Mr. Brown was a veteran of the Civil war, having enlisted in Company F, 16th Vermont regiment. He served nine months and later enlisted in the 8th Vermont regiment and was mustered out of service soon after. He belonged to the G. A. R. The funeral services were held in the Universalist church Sunday. Rev. William R. Tisker officiated. The burial took place in the family lot in the village cemetery.
