Obituary

Randolph -- -The funeral for the late Lyman Rhoades was held from the late home on Saturday, and the remains were taken to Rochester for interment. Rev. Sharpe, district superintendent of the Montpelier district of the Methodist church, was the officiating clergyman, assisted by Rev. C. W. Crawford. The bearers were, Alfred, Eaton, Hazen Wood, S. H. Howard, and John Mannes. Mr. Rhodes was a member of the Rochester Post, but at their request the U. S. Grant Post of this place gave the ritual service for the dead, at the house. The four children were present, and with his widow, accompanied the remains to its final resting place.
