Death of Hollis L. Rich Occurred Wednesday Evening Was Civil War Veteran.

Hollis L. Rich died at his home here about 7:30 Wednesday evening. He had been failing quite fast during the past few weeks but had not been confined to his bed until about a week ago. He was born in the town of Berlin June 19, 1836, but had been a resident of this place for years, being a carpenter by trade. He was a Civil war veteran, enlisting for three years, and was sergeant in Co. D, 2d Vermont regiment, but was discharged in April 1865, for disability, having one hip shattered by a bullet so that he was confined to the bed for 18 months. He was twice married, his first wife being Celia Smalley, to whom two children were born, Fred and James, both now residents of Northfield. The second marriage was to Helen Flint, who survives him.
