Obituary

Old Resident Dies in Portland, Maine

Henry J. Gero, for many years a resident of St. Johnsbury and Concord, died Thursday at the home of his son, Edward, in Portland, Me. He was 78 years old. Although apparently in his usual health the end came suddenly. Funeral services were held Saturday at Portland.

He was born in Hartland, Vt., and was a veteran of the Civil War. He came to this section about 45 years ago and was well known to all old residents. His first wife was Eliza Scott and to them were born three children: William of this place with whom the deceased had lived two years ago; Mrs. Hattie Young of Littleton, N. H.; a daughter, Annie who died in infancy. His second wife was Julia Murphy and their children are: Edward of Portland, Me.; Louis of Worcester, Mass.; Mrs. Mary Michele. Eleven grandchildren and four great grandchildren survive.
