Obituary

WORCESTER --- Albert Burrell, died at his home May 5, after a long illness and general breakdown. He was 72 years old, and a veteran of the Civil War, enlisting from Washington County on Aug. 25, 1862, to serve nine months, and was mustered into service in Brattleboro, Oct. 10, 1862, as a private of John Fletcher, Co. I. 13th Vermont Infantry, and was honorably discharged July 21, 1863, by reason of expiration of enlistment. He re-enlisted Feb. 13, 1863, to serve one year, or until the end of the war, and was mustered into service as private of Capt. Lemuel N. Hutchinson, Co. E., 8th. Vt. Regiment, Vermont Volunteer Infantry, and received his final discharge in Burlington, June 20, 1865.

He was born at Stanstead, Canada, on Aug. 6, 1845, and was married to Susan Utton of Worcester, June 16, 1867. If he had lived until June 16 of this year, they would have been married 50 years. Mr. Burrell was faithfully cared for in his last illness by his daughter, Mrs. Henry Utton. Besides his wife, who is ill at this time, he leaves one daughter, Mrs. Henry Utton, and one granddaughter, Flora Utton, and one grandson, Floyd Utton. The family have the sympathy of their many friends.

The funeral was held at his late home, May 8, Rev. Mr. Clark officiating. The bearers were Ralph Utton, Ernest Utton, Carroll Utton, and William Utton, four nephews. The flowers were most beautiful. Those from out of town to attend the funeral were, Mr. & Mrs. James Hill and son, Harry of Barre, Mr & Mrs. Ed Dana of Middlesex, Mr. & Mrs. Edmund Utton, Mr. & Mrs. Vern Utton, and son Glenn of Hardwick, Mr. & Mrs. Prosper Springer, and Carroll Williams, and Carroll & William Utton of Morrisville.
