John M. Service

North Adams Transcript
29 Jul 1903

John M. Serviss, a most respected citizen of Pownal, died at his home on Bates avenue Tuesday morning. He had attained the age of 83. Mr. Serviss spent most of his life in the township following the vocation of a farmer. During the civil war he served in the navy. For several months past he had been in feeble health, his illness culminating in a paralytic stroke Sunday morning. Mr. Serviss was held in high esteem in the community because of his noble qualities of mind and heart and he will be greatly missed by a large circle of friends and acquaintances. One son, William D., survives, with several more distant relatives living in Troy, N.Y., and Springfield, Mass. The funeral will be held at the Baptist church Thurs- day afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. Benoni Kellogg officiating. The interment will be in the Oak Hill cemetery, Pownal.
