Death of Joel H. Partlow
In the death of Joel H. Partlow, Johnson has lost one of her respected citizens, and also one of the oldest. He died Wednesday afternoon at his home on Pearl street from heart failure. He had been in feeble health for many years and was able to be about the village last summer only in his wheel chair. He had been confined to the house all winter and never regained strength after an attack of grip. He had borne his failing health and strength with great fortitude and patience and without complaint. During the last years be had been most devotedly cared for by his granddaughter, Mrs. Anna Pearl.
Mr. Partlow was born in Johnson Jan. 10, 1830, and nearly all of his life was spent here. He was married in Georgia Mar. 26, 1850, to Sarah Ann Miner, who died eight years ago last December. At the opening of the Civil War he enlisted in Co. L, 1st Vt. Heavy Artillery, and served for three years and nine months.
He is survived by three sons, George S., who is in the West, Andrew E. of Johnson and Jay B. of Brandon, and two grandchildren, Mrs. Anna D. Pearl of this place and Kenneth Partlow of Brandon."And I am glad that he has lived thus long,
Aim glad that he has gone to his reward,
Nor deem that kindly nature did him wrong,
Softly to disengage the vital cord,
When his weak hand grew palsied, and his eye
Dim with the mist of age, it was his time to die."
The funeral was held at the home Saturday afternoon at two o'clock. Rev. C. D. Pierce of Craftsbury officiated. The bearers were the two sons, Andrew and Jay Partlow, W. H. Nye, Arthur Pike, Emery Mills and Homer Caswell. The flowers, tokens of respect and affection, were beautiful. The body was placed in the vault to await burial in the family lot in Evergreen Ledge cemetery.
