Another Civil War Veteran Gone.

Anson S. Ormsby died at his house in Vershire Lower village Friday, May 15. He was born in Corinth Feb. 28, 1840. He served three years in the Civil war, enlisting in Co. L, 10th Vt. Volunteers, and was promoted to a corporal. He was twice wounded, and at the close of the war received an honorable discharge.

The funeral was held at the home Monday forenoon, Rev. A. B. Blanchard officiating. Rev. W. F. Bissell offered prayer, and a quartet of singers rendered appropriate selections.The burial was in Bradford and he was laid to rest by the side of his first wife, the mother of his children, who, with his second wife, survive him - a daughter, Mrs. A. H. Billings of this place, and two sons, Irving M. of Chelsea and George of Newark, N. J.

There were many beautiful flowers and the house was filled with sympathizing relatives and neighbors. He also leaves one sister, Mrs. Porter of Fairlee, and a brother, Henry Ormsby of Bradford, both of whom were present at the funeral.
