Obituary

Death of Daniel Stoddard

Daniel Stoddard passed away May 21 of organic disease of the heart after an illness of several years. He was born in Waitsfield, Aug. 14, 1841, the son of Hezekiah and Eleanor (Brown) Stoddard.

He enlisted at Troy, Vt., Sept. 27, 1861, as a member of Co. D of the Sixth regiment. He was wounded May 4, 1863, in the Chancellorsville campaign and was mustered out Oct. 28, 1864. He was one of the early members of Daniel Lillie Post, No. 61, G.A.R., and is the last of its members to pass away. The last meeting of the post was held at his home about four years ago, being attended by Mr. Stoddard, George H. Kimball and M. N. Kimball.

His wife was Julia Larock of Fayston, who died May 30, 1912. Mr. Stoddard is survived by a brother, Franklin Stoddard of Royalton, nine children, 18 grandchildren and 32 great-grandchildren. One son, Otis, was drowned in the Branch back of the Universalist church in 1902. The surviving children are Mrs. Florus White of Barnard, Elmer Willis Stoddard of Bethel, Stella Stoddard of Bethel, Mrs. John Hertle of Sherman Falls, Me., Mrs. Emma Seymour of Brookfield, Mrs. Fred W. Howland of South Royalton, Dana Stoddard of New York, Amos Stoddard of Springfield, Mass., and Robert Stoddard of Flint, Mich.

After their marriage Mr. And Mrs. Stoddard lived in Sherburne, Vt., in 1869 they came to Bethel and lived for many years on the so-called Briant Brown farm at the Four Corners on the mountain road to Rochester. April 23, 1881, he bought of Nelson Ellison and G. J. Wallace the Abial Putnam farm on the hill road to Lillieville. Here he lived until he retired from farming, and in 1911 he bought of the Harriet Sanders estate the former rectory premises on the east side of Main street in Bethel which has since been his home. Since the death of his wife in 1912, Mr. Stoddard was kindly cared for by his daughter, Miss Stella Stoddard.

Funeral services were held May 24, Rev. J. W. Miller officiating and the interment was in Cherry Hill cemetery.
