George A. Fletcher
After an illness of only three days following a paralytic shock, George A. Fletcher passed away Thursday, February 14, at his home on Maple street.
Mr. Fletcher was born at Hollis, N. H., in June, 1846, the son of Leonard and Mabel Stacy Fletcher. He had resided in Barton and Brownington, later coming to Orleans, where he lived the past 16 years.
He was married in Barton 13 years ago to Martha Longeway, who survives him. During the Civil war Mr. Fletcher enlisted with the nine months men in 1861. He served the full time and re-enlisted in the First Vermont Cavalry and was in service until 1865. He was a member of the G.A.R., and his death removes the last name from the roster of this post in Orleans.
Besides his wife, the only near relative surviving is W.D. Fletcher of Lyndeboro, N.H., the son of Mr. Fletcher's first marriage.
The funeral was held at his home on Saturday, Rev. L. D. Smith officiating. The interment is to be in Pleasant View cemetery.
Besides the neighbors and friends from this place, the funeral was attended by relatives of Mrs. Fletcher from Bolton and Ayers Cliff, P.Q.
