Underhill---Elijah Porter died suddenly on Wednesday, May 6, at his home in Underhill. The death of Mr. Porter was wholly unexpected, and came as a sad surprise to the whole community. He was a life long resident, a man of sterling worth and integrity, a true friend, a kind neighbor, and highly respected by all.
He was a veteran of the War of the Rebellion, and lost one leg while in the army. He was a member of Bostwick Post, G.A.R. . The solemn ceremony of the order was used at his burial.
He leaves a wife, and four children--two sons---and two daughters.
