Obituary

JACKSON -- Orra Jackson died at his home in Woodbury July 6, aged forty-two years. He was a member of Company I. Eleventh Regiment Volunteers. He leaves a wife and two children, who have the sympathy of all. He was buried under the auspices of Ellsworth Post, G.A.R, of Hardwick, of which he was a member. The funeral was held at Woodbury Center, Rev. J. D. Bailey preaching an eloquent and affecting sermon. The casket was tastefully draped with flags, and crossed swords were placed upon it by his Old Comrades. The Women's Relief Corps, of Hardwick, contributed a pillow of flowers, and Mrs. Martha McKinstry a cross and wreath of flowers. Many other friends contributed flowers. The remains will be taken to Hardwick for interment.
