Obituary

JOSEPH GREGORY DEAD
WELL KNOWN CITIZEN OF WILLIAMSTOWN
AND CIVIL WAR VETERAN

WILLIAMSTOWN, DEC. 11---Joseph Gregory, a well known resident of this town, died at 5 o'clock this morning at his home in the village, of old age. The deceased was 77 years of age last March. He was the son of Rev. John Gregory, a Universalist minister, who was located for many years in Northfield.

When a young man he entered the machine shops of the Central Vermont railroad, and later became an engineer of the main line of this railroad. When the Civil War broke out he enlisted, and served throughout the war. After being mustered out he returned to Williamstown, to carry on a farm on the West Hill, where he lived until about 24 years ago, when he purchased a home in the village, where he lived at the time of his death.

He is survived by one son, James Gregory, who resides here. The funeral will be held from the house Monday afternoon. The interment will be in the village cemetery.
