Obituary

South Londonderry--Deacon Elijah F. Rugg;

Deacon Elijah F. Rugg, 75, died at his home on Main street Friday afternoon, after a long painful illness. He was a native and life long resident of this town, and was much respected and loved by all who knew him, for his many sterling qualities, as well as his kindly disposition.

He was the son of the late Deacon William, and Rachel ( Dodge) Rugg, and one of a family of five children. He leaves one brother, John, of Chicago. He had been a faithful and consistent member of the Baptist church about 60 years, uniting when a small boy. He had been clerk 46 years, and a deacon 38 years.

He was a charter member of Hooker Post, G. A. R., and has been its chaplain its past eight years.

Mr. Rugg first married Hattie Burton Dec. 31, 1868. She died Nov. 17, 1889. His second marriage was to Mrs. Lelia Taylor, Dec. 6, 1892. She survives him. Besides his widow he leaves, by his first marriage, a daughter Mrs. Nora Fuller, of this town, and a son, Albert, of Leominster, Mass., and nine grandchildren.

The funeral was held in the Baptist church Tuesday, Rev. W. C. Goodwin officiating. There was singing by J. B. Johnson, and Mary Pierce, and the burial took place in the Yearly cemetery. Hooker Post, G.A.R., Camp Foster F. of V., and Hooker W.R.C. attended in a body. The floral tributes were many and beautiful.
