Death of Marshall H. Downey

Marshall H. Downey, aged 73 years, died Tuesday evening at the home of Mrs. Bertha Blake on Messenger st., where he had resided for the past two years. Death was the result of a stroke of paralysis suffered some time ago. The funeral will be held at the Methodist Episcopal church this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. The Rev. Dr. F.A. Lendrum, pastor, will officiate and burial will take place in the South Main street cemetery. The service will be in charge of the Masons and a delegation from the A.R. Hurlbut Post, No. 60, G.A.R., will act as an escort. Mr. Downey was (born) in Berkshire February 16, 1843. He served three years in the Civil War and at the close came to this city where he had resided ever since. He was employed in the shops of the Central Vermont railway for several years. He is survived by one son, Arthur Downey, of Swanton, and one sister, Mrs. Ellen Westover, of New York state; also by two grandchildren. His wife died two years ago this month.
