DEATH OF ELI HIBBARD
Eli Hibbard, one of St. Albans oldest residents, died at his former home on Patterson street, early Sunday morning at the age of seventy years. Age and many wounds with which he returned from the army in 1864 had accomplished considerable toward this sad finale, yet, but for the fact that some two months ago he was stricken with paralysis which completely deprived him of speech and deadened his entire right side, he promised to live to a ripe old age. He leaves a wife and four children to mourn his loss, among whom is Charles H. Hibbard, who years ago served his apprenticeship as a printer in the Messenger office, and later was editor and publisher of the St. Albans Home Journal. The Grand Army Post of which he was a member proved to be a most worthy friend to the deceased while suffering from the affliction which resulted in his death. His funeral took place today from the church of the Holy Guardian Angels. The bearers were Louis Willett, John Jarvis, Prosper Mitchell, Lucien Ingraham, Henry Jarvis and A. Guyette. He was buried in the Elm Street cemetery.
