Death of Gustavus Reed
Gustavus Reed, who died at his home in Londonderry Sept. 4, was a war veteran, having served his country faithfully in the war for the Union. He leaves a wife to mourn his loss, who by her untiring devotion to her husband during his long and tedious illness, has won the esteem and sympathy of the entire community. Mr. Reed was buried from the Congregational church in the near-by cemetery at Londonderry. Hooker post followed their comrade to his last resting place with appropriate honors. At the autopsy, held Tuesday, the diagnosis of the case was corroborated, that of cancer of the stomach. Mr. Reed was unable to take any food for 14 days before his death.
