Obituary

James Marsh, who passed away last Sunday night, was born in 1823, being seventy-nine years of age. In 1844, he was united in marriage to Lydia, daughter of Moses and Lydia Merrill, both being natives of this town. Mr. Marsh went to California at the time of the gold fever in 49, being absent three years. On arriving home he purchased and moved on to the farm occupied by him ever since. In 62 he enlisted in the war and received a gunshot wound in the Battle of the Wilderness in May of 64. After the close of the war, Mr. Marsh returned to his family and home. Four girls and two boys were born to Mr. and Mrs. Marsh only one of the whole number, the youngest, Fred, surviving. Mrs. Marsh preceded her husband to her rest only three months, she having passes away in March last. It should have been said that Mr. Marsh worked on the Central Vermont railroad for two years after returning from the West. Mr. Marsh has always been a hard worker, a kind husband and father, and an esteemed townsman. Funeral ceremonies were held Tuesday at his late residence, interment being at the village cemetery. To Mr. and Mrs. Fred Marsh we would extend our sympathy in their double loss within so short a time and recommend them to the Father of Love who can heal the wounded heart.
