Obituary

SOUTH LONDONDERRY
DEATH OF HENRY DARLING

Henry Darling, 77, died at his residence on Main Street Monday night. He was born in Rockingham, and moved to Westminster when a young man, where he enlisted in Co. G., 11th Vermont Volunteers, and served throughout the war.

He came here directly after the war, and married Georgianna Jones. They lived in the Jane Place, where D. V. Houghton now lives, caring for his wife's parents as long as they lived. On account of failing health due to his service in the army, he was unable to carry on the farm, and moved into the village in 1902. In 1915 his house was consumed by fire, and in 1916 he rebuilt.

He was a man of sterling integrity, and thought much of as a citizen. During late years, when he could not take an active part in town affairs, he always had a keen interest in the improvements and welfare of the town. He was a member of Hooker G.A.R.

He leaves one son, Frank L., clerk in the clothing store here. The funeral was held at the residence here Thursday, burial taking place in the Glebe View cemetery.
