Obituary

Durham A. Marble, veteran of the Civil War, died at his home on South Main Street at 8: 30 Monday morning. He had been ill for six or seven years, and about five years ago suffered a shock.

Mr. Marble was born in Sutton, Mass., the son of Mr. and Mrs. Israel Marble. His education was obtained in the schools of that town and Worcester. After leaving school he worked in a shoe shop, and later learned the carpenter trade. Following that occupation he went to Montpelier, as a bridge carpenter for the Wells River and Montpelier Railroad.

At Montpelier, April 9, 1882 he married Miss. Louise Hall. Six weeks later he enlisted in Company C., Thirteenth Vermont Volunteers for service in the Civil War, in which he had many thrilling experiences.

Mr. Marble came to Putnam about 25 years ago, as a bridge carpenter for what is now the N.Y. N.H., and H. railroad company.

Mr. Marble leaves a daughter, Louise Hall, with whom he made his home, and a son, H. Keno Marble, of Santa Barbara, Cal. . There are two grandchildren.

Mr. Marble was a Mason, an Odd Fellow, and a member of the G.A.R.
