Obituary

Samuel Gile

Samuel Gile was born in Conway, N.H., March 24th 1847. He was the last of eleven children born to John and Susan (Scribner) Gile. When a small child he came with his parents to West Burke, Vt. At the age of seven years they moved to the Charles Norris farm near Hardwick village, and afterwards went to Wolcott where he made his home until he enlisted in Co. I, 11th Vermont Volunteers. He served one year and nine months, at the end of which time the war closed. He then returned to Hardwick to make his home.

In 1869 Mr. Gile was united in marriage to Lucretia D. Ward, who passed out of this life May 17, 1914. After the death of Mrs. Gile his health began to fail, and he was confined to his bed about four weeks with heart trouble, dying January 15th, 1915.

The deceased is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Walter I. Ward, of this place, and one grandson, Kenneth Gile Ward. He had been a member of the Baptist church for 47 years, and also a member of Ellsworth Post, G. A. R. of Hardwick.
