Obituary

BROWNINGTON -- William M. Pearson died at the home of his sister, Mrs. W. R. Bradford ( Sarah Pearson) on December 18, 1917, in Fresno, Cal. Mr. Pearson for many years resided in Brownington, and was well known in Evansville and Coventry, being a nephew to the late Deacon Moses Pearson.

Mr. Pearson was a member of Co. F., 11th Vermont Vol. Inf. during the war of 1861-1866. He attended the G. A. R. Convention in San Francisco, August, 1903, since which time he has made his home with his sister in Fresno. He kept in touch of the happenings in Orleans County, through the Monitor's weekly visits, and took much pleasure in perusing its pages. He had been in failing health for several years, but the immediate cause of death was the rupture of a blood vessel in the brain.
