Nathan W. Leach
Nathan Leach, for the past four years a resident of this village, died at his home in Hardwick April 13, from a complication of diseases. The deceased was well-known and respected throughout Lamoille County, having been a resident in his vicinity most of his life, and will be deeply missed especially in the community where he has resided for the past few years.
Nathan W. Leach, who was the last of a family of 12 children, was a native of Waterville, having been born Sept. 26, 1842. He enlisted at Bakersfield in the 2nd US Sharpshooters Co. E, on Dec. 16, 1863, and was mustered out at Washington July 6, 1865.
He was united in marriage in early life to Miss Nancy Brown of Waterville, and the couple spent practically all of their life in that town until coming to North Hyde Park to reside, moving from this village to Hardwick last October. Six children were born to them as follows: Mrs. A. E. Wheeler of Morrisville, Owen J. Leach of Worcester. Mass., Wilbert, who died at the age of nine years, Mrs. A. D. Lang of Stowe, Mrs. W. L. Warren of Bennington and Carroll M. Leach of Hardwick.
The remains were taken to Waterville Friday where funeral services were held from the church, Elder Farnham of Peacham officiating. A quartette composed of Mrs. Hattie Stearns, Mrs. Anna Beard, O. G. Kelley and George Beard rendered favorite selections of Mr. Leach. There were numerous beautiful floral offerings. Interment was made in the village cemetery and the bearers were the sons, Owen and Carroll; sons in law, W. L. Warren, A. D. Lang, and A. E. Wheeler; and brother in law, George Beard. Besides the wife Mr. Leach leaves the five children above mentioned.
