DEATH OF IRA QUIMBY
In the death of Ira B. Quimby, who departed this life Feb. 15, his sorrowing family lose an affectionate husband and father, and the community a kind friend and neighbor. The funeral, which was held from the home of the family Sunday, was under the auspices of Bethel lodge of Odd Fellows, of which Mr. Quimby was an active and much loved member.
Mr. Quimby was born in Essex, N. Y., but came to Vermont early in life, and for many years resided on a farm in the Western part of Randolph. In 1861 Mr. Quimby enlisted as a private in Company A, 6th Vermont Vols., serving his country for three years and nine months, ranking as a Sargeant when discharged. He was an honored member of Daniel Lilly Post, G. A. R. at Bethel, and had been past Commander.
A large delegation of veterans followed his remains to the grave, where the beautiful farewell ceremonies of the lodge were concluded by the benediction being pronounced by the officiating clergyman, Rev. W. A. Warner.
The afflicted family have the sympathy of all.
