Obituary

DEATH OF D. P. FLETCHER

The death of Daniel Parker Fletcher last Wednesday removed the last of the old landmarks of Johnson Plot. Born and raised in District No. 17, he spent the greater part of his life there. He was the son of Joseph and Esther ( Perkins) Fletcher, being one of a family of seven children, five boys and two girls, all now dead excepting the youngest, Harvey Alvin Fletcher, of Brookfield.

At the breaking out of the Civil War, he was one of the first to volunteer from Johnson, enlisting in the Seventh Vt. Volunteers, and throughout his service, he was both a brave soldier and a ready helper to his younger comrades. One of the younger comrades remarked at the funeral, speaking of Fletcher's career " He was like a father to me during the war. " He returned from the war April 7, 1866, having seen nearly five years service.

Daniel Parker Fletcher was united in marriage to Matilda Patch, and to this union were born four children, two boys, and two girls, of whom survive him; One son, Harvey Daniel Fletcher, with whom he has made his home, and Mrs. Walter Davis, of Johnson Besides these two children and his brother, there are eleven grandchildren to mourn his death. In the death of Mr. Fletcher, the family loses a kind and loving father, the Grand Army one of its few remaining members, and the town an industrious, law-abiding citizen.

The funeral was held at the Congregational Church Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock, the Rev. E. G. French officiated. The bearers were his son Harvey Fletcher, his brother Harvey Alvin, a nephew L. W. Fletcher, and a son-in-law L. W. Davis. The interment was in the new cemetery in Johnson Village. The family have the sympathy of the community in their bereavement.
