Obituary

ESSEX JUNCTION
Loyal Remington Dies at Advanced Age of 84 Years.
Essex Junction, June 25. - The death of Loyal Remington, aged 84 years, occurred last night at the home of his son, Orvis J. Remington. Mr. Remington was born in Huntington and had resided in Westford, Underhill and Essex. He ran a meat cart for many years and later was a farmer. In 1862 he enlisted in Company G, 2nd Vermont, and served two years. He contracted deafness during the service from which he never recovered. He married Sarah A. Nichols of Essex about 56 years ago, and she died 21 years ago. Since that time he had resided with his children. Mr. Remington is survived by two sons, Orvis and Fred, the latter of Rochester, N. Y., and one daughter, Mrs. William Wilkinson of Wolcott. Mr. Remington was a member of Bostwick Post, G. A. R., of Underhill. The funeral will be held Thursday at two at the home of his son, with burial in Mountain View cemetery.
