Obituary

EAST ST JOHNSBURY; DEATH OF MR. LYON

Henry Olin Lyon died at his home in this village Friday, aged 62 years. Mr. Lyon was taken with pneumonia Monday, but his condition was not considered critical until a few hours before his death, when he was stricken with paralysis.

Mr. Lyon had always lived in this vicinity, and for 23 years has been a resident of this village. He was a soldier in the Civil War, serving his country for two years, when he received an honorable discharge.

He was a good citizen, a kind neighbor, and an affectionate husband and father. Mr. Lyon had been twice married. His first wife was Adah Bugbee, and died about 24 years ago, leaving two sons and a daughter; Fred now of Portland, George of Springfield, Mass., and Jennie wife of John Powers of St. Johnsbury. Twenty one years ago he married Flora Nourse of Danville, who with three children, Christabell, Murray, and an infant son survive him.

The family have the sympathy of many friends in their bereavement. The funeral was held from the late home Sunday afternoon, and was very largely attended, and the body was laid to rest in Grove cemetery.
