Obituary

East Middlebury--George W. Hewitt died at his home in this village Sunday morning after a brief illness with pneumonia, at the age of 70 years.

Mr. Hewitt was born Nov. 10, 1837, in the state of New York, where his early life was passed in the canal business, later moving to this vicinity, where he resided on North Street for several years. He had resided in his late home in this village about 20 years, and has been engaged in farming.

During the Civil War he served in Company H., 17th Vt. Vol., with an honorable military record. He was married Sept. 1, 1855, to Harriet Chopman, who, with one son, Benjamin, of Lynn, Mass. survives him, who have the sympathy of a large circle of friends in their bereavement.

Funeral services were held at the late home of the deceased at 2 o'clock, Rev. Mr. Washburne of Middlebury officiating. The bearers were, Joseph Roberts, Almond Eno, George Hodges, and Wallace Newton, Comrades of the G.A.R. The interment was in the family lot in Prospect cemetery.
