Obituary

ANDREW SIMONDS

Andrew Simonds died at his home in West Cornwall Tuesday morning of last week of consumption. The funeral was held, after brief services at the home, at the Baptist church, the pastor, Rev. G. C. Lamson, officiating. Miss Sarah Keeler, Howard Atwood and Wilson Keeler furnished good music

The G. A. R. Post, of which Mr. Simonds was a member, were present and assisted at the burial of their former comrade with their usual ceremony, which was very impressive. The attendance upon the exercises was not large, owing largely to a very heavy shower accompanied with sharp lightning and heavy thunder at the time of starting from the house. Mr. Simonds leaves a wife, who has always been devoted to him and his interests; a daughter, Mrs. Mary Matthews of Feeding Hills, Mass., who was present with her two children; Edward O., whose home is in Franklin, Mass., and Elmer, who with his family resides now with his mother. Mr. Simonds was 71 years old last March, and was a son of Barlow Simonds, for many years a resident of West Cornwall, but later of Whiting, where he died. He was of a retiring nature, taking but little part in affairs of the town and very little apparent interest, yet in his quiet way he was always a help to a friend and true to his word and the person whose case he espoused

He was a soldier in our civil war and has received a generous pension. The bearers at the funeral were A. H. Taylor, James Tracy, Frank Mayhue and H. C. Currier, comrades and neighbors. The family extend many and heartfelt thanks to the post, to neighbors and all who were so kind and thoughtful in the time of bereavement.
