He leaves a wife, formerly Miss Abbie Griswold of this town, and three children, Will A., Leroy Percy, and Arabel, wife of Rev. John Mason. His remains were brought here, accompanied by his wife and son, Will. Funeral services were held in the church at North Hyde Park Sunday morning at 10:30, conducted by Rev. Mr. Gregory, with B. L.

Mr. Fletcher was born and reared in Waterville, served through the Civil War in the 2nd Vt. Vols, since he has resided in and near North Hyde Park for a considerable time, but for several years past has made his home in Clinton and Springfield, Mass. The deceased and wife spent several weeks in this vicinity during the past summer, returning, to their home Sept. 1. He has suffered much for several years past, but was not considered to be in any immediate danger, until two days before his death. He was a loving husband, a kind father, and leaves a host of friends to mourn his loss. Mrs. Fletcher and son left for their home on Monday morning.
