Joel P. Butterfield, 69, who died in Marlboro, Nov. 10, was a native of this town, and one of a family of six sons, children of Ormabee and Hannah (Pierce) Butterfield. Three of the brothers grew to manhood, and fought for “Old Glory”. Mr. Butterfield enlisted in May, 1861, and was in the first battle of Bull Run. He served for about 18 months, and was honorably discharged in the fall of 1862.
He married about 38 years ago, Emma L. Howard of Brattleboro, who with six children, is left to mourn his loss. He also leaves one brother, William H. Butterfield of this town
Much sympathy is felt for the family, especially the widow who has been an invalid for sometime. The cause of Mr. Butterfield's death was a stroke of paralysis which he sustained a short time ago.
Mr. Butterfield had lived in Marlboro the past 30 years. The funeral was held at the house Tuesday, Rev. Mr. Shaw of Marlboro officiating, and the burial was in the cemetery at West Brattleboro.
