Azariah Snow Crane died Friday after five years of failing health following a shock which he sustained at that time. He was able to be around town, however, until last Monday, when he became seriously ill with acute indigestion. He worked for E. T. Fairbanks and Company at two different times, covering a period of 43 years in all. Mr. Crane was born in Dalton, N.H., November 25, 1845, the son of William B. and Abigail (Snow) Crane, and as a young man lived in Concord, from which town he enlisted in the 17th Vermont regiment, spending two years at the front as a drummer boy.
After the war, he was employed for a few years at the scale works, and then went to Tilton, N.H., where he learned the tinsmith trade. On April 27, 1872, he married Martha A Sargent of Canterbury, N.H. They moved to St. Johnsbury in 1873, and have since made this their home.
Mr. Crane was a member of the Passumpsic Lodge, No. 27, F. & A. M., and of Chamberlin Post, G.A.R.
The funeral was held at 3 o'clock Sunday afternoon, from the house, the Rev. George A. Martin officiating, and the interment was at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, where the Masonic services were read, and the Grand Army acted as escort. Music was by the Methodist Male Quartet.
Besides his wife, Mr. Crane is survived by a sister, Mrs. Josephine Hibbard, and a niece, Mrs. A. J. Burdick, of Rutland.
