Obituary

LOWELL

Frank Paranto, Francis Parenteau, died Wednesday, Jan. 22, at the Royal Victoria hospital in Montreal where he went for an operation for cancer of the stomach. He was 69 years of age. He enlisted from Enosburgh in Company A, Ninth Regiment of Vermont Volunteers, March 14, 1865, and was mustered out Dec. 1st of the same year at the close of the war. He was for some time a member of the Hazen Grand Army Post of this town. He is survived by his wife, who is staying with her son Ernest and family, also five sons and two daughters, and a large circle of grandchildren. The funeral, held on Tuesday was attended by a large concourse of people and a very long procession followed his remains to their last resting place. Only seven veterans of the Civil war are left in Lowell to remind us by their presence of the part taken by Lowell boys in the great struggle, and of the hardships they endured in the defense of our country. Rev. Joseph Lavigne officiated.
