Obituary

Death of Henry Dutton.

Henry Dutton, a resident of South Royalton, died Monday morning of hemorrhage of the brain. He was attacked Saturday morning while assisting his wife about the housework. He fell to the floor, but did not lose consciousness at once, nor until the night before his death.

Mr. Dutton had been a resident of South Royalton for 32 years, moving here from Northfield. He served in the Civil war, enlisting in Co. D, 12th Vt. Vols., Aug. 10, 1864, and finally discharged June 21, 1865. He had been a member of Orville Bixby post since 1887. Had he lived till July he would have been 64 years of age. In politics he was independent, but usually voted the Republican ticket. He was an attendant of the M.E. church.

He left a wife, three sons, George L., John D., and Custer Evan, residents of South Royalton, and three daughters, Mrs. Nellie Barker of Newport, N.H., N.H. Ila of Albany, N.Y., and Luna, wife of Perry Adams of Barnard.

The funeral was held Wednesday at the M.E. church, Rev. F.M. Baker officiating. The G.A.R. service was given by Bixby post at the grave.

The family have the sympathy of the community in their bereavement.
