The funeral for Samuel Eaton, who died Tuesday, Dec.11, following a shock he suffered a few days previous, was held from his late home at Morristown Corners Saturday at 1 o'clock. Rev. J. J. Bennett of the A. C. Church officiated and interment was made in Mountain View Cemetery at Morristown Corners. The bearers were Frank and William Eaton, David Muzzy, and Charles Foster.

Mr. Eaton, who was about 75 years of age, was one of several children of Henry and Harriet Eaton of Morristown. He was born in the west part of town in what is known as Sterling, and has always resided in Morristown. About 50 years ago he was united in marriage to Miss Julia Cowley, who survives him. A son, Herbert, died in young manhood. He enlisted in the war of 1861-1865, in the 11th Vermont Co. L., Heavy Artillery, and during the service received a severe wound on the head.

Besides his wife the deceased is survived by two brothers, Frank and William Eaton of Morristown, also by a sister, Mrs. Simpson.

The deceased was a charter member of the Advent Christian Church of this village, and a regular attendant at the services as long as health permitted. Mr. Eaton was a man of many sterling qualities and was held in high esteem by all who knew him.
