Funeral

Moretown - The funeral of David Lee was held at the Methodist Episcopal Church Tuesday afternoon. The Rev. Percival Hewitt of Waitsfield, who officiated, paid a fine tribute to the deceased, who was a Civil War veteran, and the flag-draped casked flanked with beautiful floral offerings made an impressing scene. Members of the Legion from Waterbury, Montpelier and Moretown were present the color bearers and firing squad. At the cemtery the Legionnaires officiated and the echoes of the guns as they were fired solemnly expressed to all present that another unsung hero had gone west. Mr. Lee lived for many years in town and worked for the Ward Lumber Co.
