Obituary

DEATH OF A VETERAN

William Wesley Goodwin, aged 71, and a veteran of the Civil War, died last night at his home, 137 Beckley Street, this city, following an illness of long duration. H had been unable to follow his occupation of carpenter for seven years, and the cause of death was bronchial trouble, complicated by heart weakness.

He was born in Berlin March 1, 1838, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Major S. Goodwin, but practically his entire life was passed in Montpelier. He early learned the shoe maker trade, which his father followed, but later took up the carpenter trade, which he engaged in for many years. He removed to this city two years ago.

Mr. Goodwin enlisted in the Civil War as a member of Co. I., 13th Vermont, and served nine months in the service. He leaves his wife and one daughter, Miss Mabel L. Goodwin, also a grandson, the son of the late J. A. Goodwin, and one brother, Lucius Goodwin of Montpelier, and a sister, Mrs. Frank Griswold of Nashua, N.H.

There will be a prayer service at the residence on Beckley Street Monday afternoon at 1 o’clock, and the remains will be taken to Montpelier for burial at Green Mount cemetery. There will also be a service at the cemetery.
