Obituary

WAITSFIELD
John G. Lewis, Former Resident, Died in Burlington

John G. Lewis, a former resident, died in Burlington Monday, June 2, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Edmund T. Huntington of 62 South Champlain street.

John Gutterson Lewis was born in Concord, N. H., April 29, 1839. In 1862 he married Sarah Bates of Waitsfield and resided for many years on the Bates farm now occupied by R. L. Joslin. Mr. Lewis was a veteran of the Civil war, having served nine months with Co. F, 12th Vt. Regiment. He was a life-long member of the Congregational church of Waitsfield.

In 1901, they removed from Waitsfield to Lebanon, N. H., where they resided until 1911, when they went to Burlington to reside with their daughter, Mrs. Huntington. Mr. Lewis had been suffering with kidney trouble of long standing, of which he died.

He is survived by his wife and five children: Mrs. Gertrude Huntington of Burlington; George Lewis, Lebanon, N. H.; Mrs. Mary Joslin, Waitsfield; Edwin Colby Lewis, Montpelier; and Mrs. Harriet Bartlett of Eagle Point, his cousin; also six grandchildren, Harold, Leon, Evelyn and Merton Joslin, Waitsfield; Ivan Lewis, Montpelier, and Clayton Lewis, Lebanon, N. H.

Prayer was offered at his late home Tuesday morning by Rev. Mr. Braker, pastor of the Baptist church. The funeral service was held in the Congregational church, Waitsfield, at 2 o'clock Wednesday, Rev. W. A. Bemele officiating. The bearers were his two sons, George and Edward Lewis, his son-in-law, B. L. Joslin, and nephew, Robert Lewis. Interment was in the family lot on the common.
