Obituary

Mr. John Spaulding, a resident of this village and a long-time resident of the town, died very suddenly last Friday of apoplexy at the age of 57 years. He had been feeling poorly for a few days but was able to be about and came to the village every day. At the close of the day he was feeling quite ill and thought he would take his bed and call a physician. He was sitting in a chair while his daughter undid his shoes, when he fell forward onto the floor and gasped once when life was extinct. He left a wife and seven children, four of them grown to manhood and womanhood and three under age, the youngest being seven years of age. He bore an honorable record as a soldier, who served his country in the war of the rebellion and lost an arm near the shoulder in the Battle of the Wilderness with the Army of the Potomac in 1864. He served in the 3d Vt. Regt., and was a member of Bixby post, G. A. R. He was a good citizen and a kind and genial neighbor. His funeral was held Sunday at the Cong'l church of Royalton, Rev. W. E. Mann officiating. The burial service was with the Grand Army honors by his post, with the Sons of Veterans as escort.
