Memorial resolutions were passed in regard to the death of Hon. Ora Paul of Woodstock. Mr. Paul went out with the light Infantry in 1861, served three months as private, returned to Woodstock when he was elected Captain of Company B., 12th Vermont Regiment, and was ordered out again in 1862.

He served as constable in 1863, represented the town of Pomfret in 1865-66, '76 '77, was Senator for Windsor County from 1880-1884. He had been Justice of the Peace from 1873 until his death.

He received many honors also in the Order of Good Templars, being deputy of district No. 5, in 1874, and it was mainly through his influence and labor that Woodstock lodge was established, and reached its high position as banner lodge of the state. He represented the Grand Lodge of Vermont in the Right Worthy Lodge at the Topeka session in 1881, and the Washington session in 1884. He was Grand Worthy Chief Templar of the Grand Lodge of this state. 1882 and 1883.

All the public offices and trusts he filled honorably and well.
