Obituary

Vermont Phoenix, 17 January 1896

Albert A. Graves died Friday at his home in Springfield, Mass. About three months ago while repairing a building in Ashfield, he fell from the roof to the ground, a distance of twelve feet, sustaining severe internal injuries which have since confined him to his home. He suffered a paralytic shock recently, which probably hastened his death. The deceased was born in Guilford in 1849 and was the son of Dexter H. Graves, a well-known farmer. He spent his early life in Guilford and at one time worked in this place. At the breaking out of the war he enlisted as a private in Company F, Fourth Vermont Volunteers, and served through four years. At the close of the war he went to Springfield, working at his trade, as a carpenter and jobber. He was married twenty-eight years ago to Mrs. Lizzie L. Pullen of New York, and three children, Dexter H., Cora R., and Albert L. Graves, survive him. He was a prominent member of Hampden lodge of Odd Fellows and the and Army. The funeral was hel in Springfield Sunday afternoon at 3 and the body ws brought here for burial on Monday, Rev. Mr. Hough conducting brief services at the grave. Two nieces of Mr. Graves live in this county, Mrs. E. L. Caldwell of Brattleboro and Mrs. H. L. Nichols of Hinesburg.
