GEORGE HOLCOMB DIES AT HOME OF HIS DAUGHTER

George Holcomb, aged 88 years, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Carl Baker, on Lake Street, Morrisville, Tuesday morning about 10 o'clock. He had been confined to his bed only since Saturday, having been in remarkably good health considering his age up to short time ago.

The deceased was born in Panton and lived for many years in Vergennes. He moved to Johnson 16 years ago, and from there to Morrisville seven years ago. He was a veteran of the Civil War, and during his residence was much interested in James M. Warner Post, G.A.R.

Besides the daughter with whom he lived for many years, he is survived by three sons, John, David, and George Holcomb, all of Philadelphia. His wife, who was Louise Nichols, died in 1892.

A prayer service was held from the home Thursday afternoon at 2o'clock, Rev. W.J. McFarlane officiating. The remains will be taken to Vergennes for burial.
