West Topsham---George H. Rice, who would have been 85 years old had he lived until next month, died Wednesday evening. He had been in failing health for several years, although he had done considerable work during that time. Mr. Rice was a carpenter by trade, and a veteran of the Civil War.
Many years of his life was spent in Lebanon, N. H., where he worked at his trade, but for many years he had lived in Topsham, and followed his vocation in this city.
His first wife died some years ago, and his second wife survives, with a daughter, Mrs. Carroll Button, who lives in Orange. The funeral was held yesterday.
