Leander L. Laraway

On Thursday evening at 8 o,clock occurred the death of Leander Lucius Laraway at his home in Waterbury after a ten days illness from erysipelas. The funeral service was held at his late home Saturday, The Rev George Tabor of this place officiating. The bearers were three brothers, Alexander, of Morristown, Albert, of Stowe, James, of Concord, N.H., and a nephew, L.A. Laraway of Waterville. Interment was made in the family lot in Mountain View Cemetery, Morristown Corners.

Leander Lucius Laraway was born in Canada 84 years ago, one of nine children born to Mr. and Mrs. Francis Laraway. He moved to Vermont with his parents when a small boy and practically his whole life had been spent in this town. Fifty two years ago last November, he was married to Phoeba Drugg, who, with an adopted daughter, Mrs. George Bassett, and four grandchildren survive. He is also survived by four brothers, the three previously mentioned, and Philip Laraway of Fall River, Mass.

The deceased was a Civil War Veteran, and had for many years been totally disabled. He was most highly esteemed in this community where most of his life was spent, and deep sympathy is extended the family in their bereavement.
