MANCHESTER, N.H. -- JULY 18; The Rev. John C. Osgood died in Maine a few days ago, and whose funeral was held in the Porter Memorial Hall at Ocean Park, was one of the best Free Will Baptist Ministers' in New Hampshire. He held a number of pastorates in the state, the first and last being at Gilmanton Iron Works.

The dead clergyman was a native of Randolph, Vermont, and was born in 1841, and after graduation from the New Hampshire Institute he served in the Civil War with the 10th Vermont Volunteers.

After the war he returned to the institute and studied theology, and graduated in 1868. In the thirty-ninth year of his work as preacher he held thirteen pastorates; In their order they were as follows; Natick, Mass., Contoocook, Pittsfield, South Berwick, Me., Harrison, Me. and Alton, East Rochester, Littleton and Newmarket in the state.

The funeral services were conducted by the Rev. A. W. Jefferson of the First Baptist Church, at Portland, Me., and other pastors were present at the service.

He was two years Chaplain of the New Hampshire Department of the Grand Army. He was, also, for many years a trustee of the New Hampshire Literary Institute, and once a delegate to the national convention of the Free Baptist. He was prominent as an Odd Fellow.

The survivors are his wife, and one son. The body was taken to East Randolph, Vt., his birth place, where a service was conducted by the Rev. E. W. Ricker, of Lisbon Falls, Me. and the local Free Baptist pastor.
