Obituary

Death of Andrew J. Ladd

Andrew J. Ladd, who had been in poor health for two years, passed away early last Thursday morning at his home here. Mrs. Ladd passed away two years ago, and since that time he had been in declining health, but had been up and about the house until December last.

He was born in the town of Northfield, Aug. 17, 1847. He was married to Lucy Wilson of Roxbury, March 4, 1860, and settled on a large farm which he bought adjoining his father's large farm, upon which he erected a new home, living there over thirty years or until it became necessary to live with his parents on account of their advanced years. A smaller place was bought and a new home was built for them. Mr. Ladd held many town offices, representing the town in 1915. He was a member of the Mystic Star lodge of Brookfield, Boynton post of Northfield, honorary member of the Ladies' G. A. R. Organization of East Braintree, and served his country in Co. C, First Regt. of Vt. Cavalry.

Mr. and Mrs. Ladd lived to a ripe old age, celebrating their 50th and 60th wedding anniversaries. Besides his sister, Mrs. Jennie Holman of Roxbury, he leaves three daughters and three sons, Mrs. W. S. Andrews of East Colrain, Mass., A. S. Ladd of Newton, La., Mrs. Horace Wakefield of West Brookfield, John P. Ladd of East Roxbury, Mrs. Herbert L. Patch of Randolph and Clyde A. Ladd of Oakland, Cal.

The funeral was held from the late home Saturday at 2 o'clock. Rev. Allen S. Holt of East Roxbury officiated at the services and the Masonic lodge of Brookfield performed the last rites at the grave. The bearers were bothers of the Masonic lodge, Charles Blake, George Knowles, John Davis and George Wakefield. The casket was draped with t he American flag in honor of Mr. Ladd's service in the Civil war, and there were many beautiful flowers. Burial was in the family lot in East Roxbury.

Besides the Masonic order of Brookfield, Masons were present from Williamstown and Northfield, and friends and relatives were present from Northfield, Brookfield, Randolph and nearby towns and from Greenfield and Norwood, Mass.
