Nathaniel Piper, of whom mention has been made before, passed calmly to rest Nov. 26. He has been in poor health for some time but confined to his bed only about a week. He was a veteran of the Civil War, enlisting when only sixteen years of age, in Co. K, 19th Vermont Vols., and served until the close of the war. He married Miss Ann Bartlett, Sept. 22, 1827. From this union four children were born: Maie Spaulding of Barre, Nellie Rooney of Boston, Bessie Cushion and Ora Piper of this village, all of whom survive him. His wife died about two years ago. He was a member of Isaac Blake Post which attended the funeral in a body and the burial was by their order. Four of Co. K members served as bearers: Eben Bruce, Kimball Clifford, William Moulton and Henry Calkins. Rev. J.D. Waldron officiated. The floral offering was a pillow from the G.A.R. and W.R. C., carnations from the family, with several other smaller emblems, which told of the esteem in which he was held by his friends in this village. The burial was in the village cemetery.
