Obituary

Royal Sanborn, a well-known and highly respected citizen of Tunbridge, died Wednesday, Aug. 5th, at his home at John Bennett's. .He had been ill for several months with an incurable disease, but was able to be about until three months ago, when he commenced to fail rapidly. His integrity, moral worth and kindly disposition had endeared him to a wide circle of friends. It is said of him that he had not an enemy in the world. He was a soldier in the war of '61 to '65, serving in Co. E, 2d Vt. Vols., and participated in every battle of the army of the Potomac, a record very few obtained. He was a member of Waterson post, G.A.R., at Tunbridge and was greatly beloved by his comrades. His funeral will be held Friday at So. Tunbridge, his early home.
