Alonzo B. Sargent, who for 29 years has been a resident of our little village, has so suddenly demised, that it is impossible not to believe he is still working among his flowers. A brief illness of a few days ended in death Thursday morning, the 14th, inst. He was born in Irasburg 66 years ago, and for four years was a member of the Regiment band of the 11th Vermont Heavy Artillery. He was a member of the Cong. church, the offices of Dea. and Supt. of S.S., and was chorister for a period of 25 years.
In 1854 he married Miss. Betsey Leet of Linwick, Canada, and six children were born to them. A widow and two sons survive him, A quiet, modest man, yet one who will be greatly missed.
Services from the house Saturday a.m., attended by Rev. Davenport of North Troy. Flowers, which he loved so dearly, were in profusion, and his final resting place was made beautiful with flowers.
