Wentworth N. Harris
Deerfield Valley Times (Wilmington)
January 15, 1892
In the death of Wentworh N. Harris, who departed this life on Saturday, Jan. 2, the town loses a good man and his children a kind and loving father. About two weeks ago Mr. Harris was taken ill with the prevailling influenza, but after a few days was so far recovered as to be out again. It would seem that he overdid or took cold so that he had a second attack which terminated in pneumonia. Mr. Harris was a native of Vernon. He came here to live about the year 1868, and has since been an esteemed citizen of this town. He was an industrious, candid, conscientious, honest man. For several years he had been one of the selectmen of the town. He was a member of the Universalist church at Wilmington, and was also a member of the Grand Army, having served as a soldier in the Civil war for three years. Rev. Mr.
Sprague of Brattleboro attended the funeral, which was held from the Congregational church on Tuesday. The heartfelt sympathy of neighbors and friends is given to the bereaved family of children who within two months have lost a devoted and indulgent father and mother. Mr. Harris was about 53 years of age.
