Orange Adams Comstock died Tuesday at his home near Swanton Junction, at the age of 70. He was born and always lived on the same farm, except while away fighting the battles of his country, as a private in Co. K., 13th Vt. Vols., during the Civil War.

He married Emily Willis of Plainfield, Vt., who died about 31 years ago. He had three children, two of whom are still living with him on the home farm, and were with him when he died. They are Walter Comstock, and Lucia A. L. Comstock. His sister, Miss Bessie Comstock, also made her home with him.

He was a member of Post Jesse Jewett, G.A.R. Although he had not been in good health for six months past, death came very suddenly at last. His physician said he had heart trouble. Monday he was out and about as usual, but about 2 o'clock Tuesday morning he wakened with great pain in his stomach and bowels, which continued until his death Tuesday night about 6 o'clock.

The funeral will be held Thursday afternoon at the house, at 2 p.m.
