Barney Cannon Dead

Postmaster Barney Cannon of Bellows falls, died at 10:30 o'clock Sept. 13 of valvular heart disease. He had been in ill health for about three months, and a change for the worse appeared one week ago. Mr. Cannon is survived by a wife, Rose a. Connolly, whom he married in 1871, and one daughter, Mrs. Charles T. Grout of Boston. He was born in Weston, June 25, 1847. He enlisted in the 6th Vt. Vols., when he was 15 years old. At the close of the Civil War he settled in this village where he followed the trade of carriage painter. Mr. Cannon was instrumental in forming a G.A.R. post in Bellows Falls in 1880 and became its commander. He was an aid on the staff of the G.A.R. department, commander if 1884, department adjutant general in 1892, and department commander in 1895. In 1890 he was appointed postmaster, holding the office for four years. He was appointed again in 1899 and had held the position since that time.
