Obituary

Franklin Hoyt, aged 73, an old resident of the town died on Sunday evening. Funeral services were held at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, at his late home, and Rev. J. Edward Wright officiated. Brooks G. A. R. Post, of which Mr. Hoyt was a member, attended in a body. He was Sergt. in Co. C., 17th Vt. Vols., also a member of the 13th Vols. He has received a pension of $16 a month for a gunshot wound through his body, and its supposed that his death was caused from results of the wound. A silk handkerchief was drawn through the body at the time of the injury, when he was left on the battlefield for dead.

Mr. Hoyt has probably built more houses in Montpelier than any other man in town, and will be missed as a kind friend and neighbor . He leaves two daughters.
