George W. Drown

George W. Drown, whose serious illness was noted in our last issue, died at his home on Summer Street Friday afternoon, Jan 7th, at about three o'clock. He had been in failing health for some months, and a few weeks ago received a bad fall. The immediate cause of his death was pneumonia.

Mr. Drown was born in Compton, P.Q. Jan. 6, 1838, and was the eldest of ten children. His early life was spent in Sheffield, Vt.

He was twice married, and to the first union was born two sons, Charles and Herbert Drowne, who survive him.

His second marriage was to Mary Davis in 1886, who with a step daughter, Mrs. D.A. Sanders, and foster son, G. W. Drowne Jr. survive.

Mr. Drowne resided in Wisconsin most of the time for 35 years, he and his wife returning to their native state six years ago.

He enlisted, with three brothers, in the Civil War, and served three years and 21 days in the 8th Vt, Co. K., and was a member of James M. Warner Post. He kept well informed and was especially interested in the late war, as his son George, served five years.

The funeral was held at the late home, on Monday afternoon. Rev. George Fortier of the Universalist church officiating. Burial was made in Riverside Cemetery. The bearers were the sons, George and Herbert Drowne of St. Johnsbury, F. L. George and D.A. Sanders. There were many beautiful flowers from friends and relatives,

Those from out of town to attend the funeral were George W. Drown Jr. wife and infant son, and Herbert Drowne of St. Johnsbury.

Much sympathy is extended the family in their great bereavement.
