Obituary

CABOT

Death of William Keniston, Civil War veteran.

William Keniston died very suddenly last week Tuesday. He had not been well for some time but went out to the mailbox and got his paper, lay down on the bed to read the news and fell asleep never to waken. Some of the family going to his room found him dead. He was an aged man and a well-to-do farmer, honest in his dealings with people and a veteran of the Civil war. He leaves a wife and several children, all grown up. Funeral services were held at his home Thursday, Rev. F.E. Currier officiating. He was laid to rest in the village cemetery.
