Death of B. F. Emerson.
The death of Benjamin F. Emerson, a prosperous farmer and senior deacon of the Congregational church deserved more then mention. For many years he has resided on the farm on the Westmore road where he died. Although a member of the church in this village, he was not far from the little church in Westmore, which has received a share of his labor and interest. He was elected senior deacon during the pastorate of Rev. Lawrence Phelps about 20 years ago, and labored faithfully for its interests both in church and Sunday school until his health failed.
His funeral was held at his late home on May 5th, Rev. R. L. Sheaff, his pastor, officiating.
His family consisted of a son, who has taken charge of the business since his father's failure in health and mind, which began soon after the death of his wife, some years ago; a daughter who has tenderly cared for him in his decline, also a son who resides in Hardwick. He was a member of Quimby Post, G.A.R., in which he took great interest, and was a highly respected citizen in the community.
