DEATH OF JOHN T. KNOWLTON -- John Taggart Knowlton, aged 58 years, died at 3 o'clock Saturday morning after an illness of four months duration, during the last six weeks which he had been confined to bed. A complication of diseases affected him, against whose undermining attacks he bravely struggled, but at length though loth to lose his strong hold on life he accepted the inevitable with peaceful resignation, and in unfaltering trust prepared to meet the last great change. His unselfish nature asserted itself in the weeks of suffering, and increasing weakness, consequently borne, and he strove with rare patience and sweetness to lighten the burden and sustain the spirits of those about him until the sad end came.

Mr. Knowlton was born in Gaysville, the son of Emmaus and Harriet (Taggart) Knowlton, and has always lied in his native town until two and a half years ago, when he removed to Randolph, having purchased the Cedar (formerly known as the Hages place) at Beanville. In this home he had taken deep interest, and had already made a good beginning in the extensive repairs of which he had in mind.

He left a wife, two sons, and a daughter -- Frank Lawrence of Franklin N. H., Ralph Leslie of Hathorn, Mass., and Lillian Lepha, a teacher, living at home. He is also survived by his mother, Mrs. Harriet Knowlton of Gaysville, who within a year has been bereft of her husband and two sons.

The funeral services were held at The Cedar at 11 0'clock Monday morning, Rev. G. L. Ladd, pastor of the Cong'l church officiated. A. F. Lamb had charge of arrangements, and the bearers were, E. A. Thomas, A. H. Beedle, M. W. McCollom. and Horace Howard. The body was taken to Gaysville for interment, and the burial service was conducted by the Grand Army Post of this place., of which the deceased was a member, having served nine months in the Civil War, in the 13th Vermont battery.
