GEORGE W. BRYANT
Geo. W. Bryant died here Wednesday of last week of liver and heart trouble of several years' duration. Mr. Bryant was born in Holland June 2, 1835, was married at Brownington May 1, 1864 to Miss Lizzie Horn of Holland. Mrs. Bryant and one daughter, Mrs. Elmer Pinney, of Newport and two brothers survive. By trade Mr. Bryant was a carpenter, doing considerable building in this vicinity. He served a year in the Civil war in Co. E, 15th Vt. Vols. Mr. Bryant was a charter member of Isaac Blake Post, G.A.R., later transferred to Island Pond and Newport post but when failing health prevented his attending he withdrew. December 22, 1887, For many years he suffered from poor health, but with his unfailing habit of a lifetime gave only cheery words and smiles to his friends and acquaintances. Had he lived until May 1st Mr. and Mrs. Bryant were to have observed their fiftieth marriage anniversary. He was a member of the Adventist church, a constant attendant so long as health permitted and contributed liberally towards its support. During his last illness he was a great sufferer, but bore all patiently and cheerfully. His daughter was with him during his last illness and all that loving hands and hearts could do for his comfort was gladly done. The funeral was held from the church Friday, Marshall Ames and Revs. Harris and Clark officiating. Interment was in the cemetery here. The multitude of beautiful flowers which covered the casket spoke more plainly than any words could have done of the love and esteem in which he was held. Much sympathy is expressed for the wife and daughter and other relatives in their bereavement.
