Morrisville News and Citizen: May 9, 1917
DEATH OF L. M. MayOTT
Leonard M. Mayott, one of Morrisville's most highly respected citizens, died at his home on High Street Monday morning, after a long period of ill health. His condition had gradually failed for some time and for the past eleven weeks he had been confined to his bed. Death was due to rheumatism and complications resulting from army troubles.
The funeral was held from the home this afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. Feo. W, Tabor officiating. The services were under the auspices of Mt. Vernon Lodge, F. & A.M., and the bearers were Dr. George L. Bates, E.E. Schutt, W.H. Town, and R.P. Briggs. Interment was in Pleasant View Cemetery in the family lot.
The deceased was born in St. Johns, P.Q., 72 years ago the 20th of this month, one of thirteen children of Morria and Mary Mayott When the deceased was only six days old the family moved to Montpelier, and there his boyhood days were spent. He came here from South Woodbury 31 years ago, and until three years ago this spring conducted a successful blacksmith business, when he wad obliged to retire on account of ill-health.
He enlisted in Co. G., 4th Vt. Volunteers in the Civil War and served nearly three years, seeing much active service. He received a bullet wound in his left leg, below the hip, from which he was lame the remainder of his life. He was a member of James M. Warner Post, G.A.R, and was for 42 years a Mason, joining the lodge at Cabot, from which he was transferred to Mt. Vernon Lodge, in Morrisville.
Of the thirteen children in his family, only two, the oldest and the youngest, Mrs. Mary Archambault 82, of Montpelier, now living in Hartford, Conn., and Geo. Mayott, of Boston, 55, survive.
In 1869 Mr. Mayott was united in marriage to Miss Lucy Drugg, daughter of John and Marguerite Drugg of Stowe. To this union was born one daughter, Bessie Mae, who survives him. Mrs Mayott died about 24 years ago, and a year later he married Mrs. Berilla A. Jennings who lived only a year after the marriage. As a citizen and neighbor Mr. Mayott held a high place in the esteem of a large circle of friends, who learned to respect and admire his many fine traits of character. Unassuming and modest in his tastes and habits, he detested the artificial, but always looked for the best in his fellows. His was a religion of deeds, not words, and a wide circle of friends will long cherish his memory.
