Davidson J. Perkins who has been in failing health for over two years, died the 25th of March, aged 62 years. He leaves a widow, two daughters and three sons to mourn his loss. The funeral services were held at the M.E. church, Sunday afternoon. The church was filled. The G.A.R. post, of which he was a member, attended in a body, also the Sons of Veterans and W.R.C. Rev. W.J. McNeil conducted the services, assisted by Revs. Cowell, Dockham and Vance, and were very impressive. Mr. Perkins has lived in this community for over thirty years, coming here in 1861 or 2. Soon after coming here he enlisted in Co. G, 13th Regt. Vt.

Mr. Perkins was a member of the M.E. church and S.S. here, and was a consistent Christian and highly respected.
