Orlando E. Kennedy passed peacefully away Sept. 27, at the age of 79 years. He was born in Plymouth and came with his parents to this town when eight years of age; and resided a large part of his life here. He was an honorable and respected citizen by all who knew him. He is survived by a wife, two sons, a daughter and ten grandchildren.
Mr. Kennedy was a veteran of the Civil War, having served twenty-one months, and participated in sixteen battles and several skirmishes, and was discharged with honor at the close of the war, and returned home in a very poor state of health, having contracted diseases while in the army, which he never fully recovered.
The funeral was attended at the late home Sept. 29 at 2 o'clock. Rev. Mr. Whitney of Boston officiated. and the interment was in Rochester cemetery. The procession was escorted to the last resting place by the Edson Post, G.A.R. of which Mr. Kennedy was a member. The military rites were administered by the Post, and all realized a good man was gone, a member of Company B, 11th Regiment, Vermont Volunteers.
