It wa a sad hour when death came to the happy home in Barre, taking the husband and father, E. S. Burnham, to that home not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. He had been in poor health for some time, and died Oct. 9 of liver trouble.

He was born in this town March 30, 1844, and had always lived here until six years ago when he moved his family to Barre to educate his daughter He married Esther Pierce, who survives him, with one daughter, Irene, besides a sister, two half brothers, and a large circle of friends to mourn his loss.

He was a member of the Universalist Church. Mr. Burnham was a genial man, a kind neighbor, a loving companion and father, and rarely does a man leave more warm friends and sincere mourners.

The funeral was held at the Union Church, Stockbridge, Saturday afternoon, where a large number gathered to pay their last respects to him whose loved face they should see no more. Kind hands had placed flowers on and around the casket of the silent sleeper, and after the funeral his body was borne to the beautiful cemetery at Stockbridge Common.

The family have the sympathy of the community in their sad affliction.
