Obituary

John Farnham, a longtime Canadian resident of this town and a successful farmer, died in Middlesex Monday afternoon of last week of consumption. On account of poor health he let his farm this spring to his youngest son and moved to Middlesex. He had been a long sufferer. His oldest son Joseph, a resident of Illinois, came in season to be present at the funeral. With his wife he was on the noon express but the conductor refused to stop the train to let them off at Middlesex. Had he done so they would have been there before their father died but having to go to Montpelier Junction and wait for the mail north he was dead when they reached home. The funeral took place at the Catholic Church in this village, Wednesday, Father Donahue officiating. The interment was in the Catholic Cemetery on South Hill.
