The body of Henry Ford was brought here Tuesdya from Dorchester, Mass., by his stepson, Dr. William S. Wilson, and taken to the West Brookfield cemetery for burial. As a boy Mr. Ford lived at John Spear's in Braintree and later in the family of Elder Baldwin, with whose two sons, the late F. Wayland and Henry Baldwin, he enlisted for the Civil war in Company F, 12th Vermont regiment. In that same company also was the late Hiram A. Huse of Montpelier. After the war Mr. Ford made his home in this section for a few years and in that time was a member of the old Cornet band. In 1869 he went to Boston and had ever since resided in the vicinity of that city. He had long been afflicted with shaking palsy. For the last five or six years it had made him practically helpless. He left a wife, to whom he was married about 10 years ago, and a sister, Mrs. Chloe Smith of Boston. He was an uncle of Mrs. J. H. Lamson and a schoolmate and life-long friend of Lyman Hutchinson. Mr. Ford had reached the age of 66 years.
