Obituary

William Robbins, our stage driver had a shock last Saturday night from which he never rallied to know any one, and died Sunday night at 9 o'clock at the age of 58 years. He was an old veteran of the Civil War, being a member of the 11th Vermont Volunteers. His term of enlistment was three years which he served faithfully. He was a respected citizen and one who will be greatly missed by a large circle of friends. The sympathy of the community got out to the bereaved wife and friends. The funeral took place Tuesday at 1 p.m., in the M.E. church, Rev. O.M. Boutwell officiating. His remains were taken to the Branch cemetery for interment.
