Obituary

DEATH OF HORACE CUTTING
ONE OF THE LIFE LONG RESIDENTS.

In the death of Horace W. Cutting, who passed away at Brightlook Hospital, Wednesday morning, April 29, Concord is again called to part with one of its most respected citizens, one who was always courteous and upright in his business associations, and one who will be greatly missed, not only by his immediate family and friends, but by the people of the community. Mr. Cutting has been in poor health for some years, and for the past few months a great sufferer, hoping for some relief from a surgical operation, he went to Brightlook Hospital, Thursday, April 23, where he underwent a serious surgical operation Saturday, from the effects of which he died Wednesday morning.

Horace A. Cutting was born in Concord July 11, 1844, a son of Franklin and Prudence Isham Cutting. He was one off a family of six sons, two of whom survive him. With the exception of six years, when Mr. Cutting was in the ice business in New York City, his whole life has been spent in Concord, most of it on the farm where he was born, and which has been in the Cutting family for more than 100 years.

November 12, 1863, he enlisted in Co. D., Eleventh Vermont Volunteers. Of the twelve engagements in which the regiment was concerned he took part in all but three, when he was ill with typhoid fever. The occasions most vividly remembered are Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor, and the bitter episode at Weldon Railroad, where Mr. Cutting escaped capture on account of being to weak from a recent illness to keep up with the regiment, who were nearly all captured, by falling behind a log and escaping notice, later making his escape to the Union lines He was discharged August 25, 1865.

On December 7. 1878 he was married at Littleton, N. H. to Miss Fannie D. Norris, of Lowell, Mass. Three sons were born to them, Frank A. and Henry A. of this town, and Ralph T. of Lowell, Mass. He represented the town in the State legislature in 1912, hs served as selectman nine years, and also a lister. He was a member of the Woodbury Post G.A.R. # 65.

The funeral was held from the late home Saturday at 1 o'clock, Rev. A. M. Smith, pastor of the First Universalist Church officiating. Ralph W. Parker sang three appropriate selections. Beautiful floral tributes and the large attendance showed in what respect Mr. Cutting was held. Besides the widow and three sons left to mourn the loss of a kind husband and father, he is survived by one grandson, Basil Cutting, two brothers, Oliver B. of this town, and Stilman F., of Waterford, and an adopted sister, Mrs. C. S/Stacy of this place, and several nieces and nephews. The interment was in the family lot at the Fry cemetery. Woodbury Post G.A.R performed their burial service at the grave.
