Charles E. Hardy died in Danville Thursday after an illness of about two weeks. He had made his home in Orleans with his son, Frank Hardy, the greater part of the time for the past six years, but had been living with his son, J. L. Hardy in Danville, since September. He was born in Potton, P. Q., in August 1843, and lived nearly all his life in Troy where he had long been a member of the Congregational church and served as deacon for many years

He enlisted in Co. C, 8th Vt. Vols., and served for three years and was a member of Bailey Post No. 67, G. A. R

He married Mary M. Heyer, of St. Johnsbury, who died in September 1903

The funeral was held in the Congregational church at North Troy on Saturday. He is survived by three sons and three daughters, only one of whom was unable to be with him at the last, Mrs. Otto S. Hahn, of Fortress Monroe, Va

Mrs. Anna Witt of Northfield, Mass., Mr. and Mrs. G. T. Randall and Miss Randall of Tilton, N. H., E. L. Hardy and daughter, Hallie, of Cambridge, Mass., and J. L. Hardy and daughter Lorinda, of Danville attended the funeral of their father and spent some time at the home of Frank Hardy Saturday.
