Obituary

Franklin Center, aged 98, the oldest resident of Fair Haven, died Thursday at the home of his nephew there. He was born in Canada, August 25, 1812. He was a veteran of the Civil war, having served in the 2nd Vermont Regiment and later in the 2nd New York Cavalry. Until three months ago, he had been for some time an inmate of the soldiers’ home in Bennington, leaving there to visit his only surviving sister in Fair Haven. Mr. Center was unmarried.
