Almon F. Day passed from this life on February 15 at his home at Manchester Depot. The funeral was on Sunday the 17th at his late home, Rev. Joseph S. Brown officiating, and the remains were temporarily placed in the vault at Dellwood cemetery.

Mr. Day was born September 26, 1843 in Searsburg. Soon after the family removed to Woodford, and when he was about 12 years of age they came to live in the west part of Bennington. His father, Roswell Day, came from Connecticut and his mother was Eliza Fillmore of Bennington, cousin of President Fillmore.

Mr. Day was a member of Co. A, 14 Vermont Regiment and went from Bennington with the company that was organized Aug. 27,1862.

On Jan. 29, 1878 he married Miss Frances A. Elliott of Manchester and settled on her father's farm in the southern part of the town, where he lived at the time of her death Aug. 27, 1905. March 4, 1908 he married for a second wife, Mrs. Eva H. Taylor of Manchester and after a short time sold the farm and purchased a home at Manchester Depot. His wife died March 25, 1916 and his step-daughter, Estella Taylor, kept his house and cared for him till he too passed over the river. He had two brothers and one sister none of whom are now living. One nephew survives him, Arthur H. Day of Cam- bridge, N.Y.
