Obituary

Enosburg Falls

The body of George W. (Spicer) Montgomery was brought here Friday from Jamaica Plains, Mass., where the funeral was held Thursday, and buried in the family lot in Mississquoi cemetery beside his parents. The deceased was 75 years of age and had been in failing health for a few years. F..W Spicer, a brother living in town, is the only near relative. Mr. Montgomery lived in town as a boy and again a few years ago when he was superintendent of the water and light plant. He was a Civil War veteran, having served in the same regiment (the Sixth Vermont) as his father, the late Charles Spicer. He later re-enlisted in the Tenth Vermont. He was a member of the Odd Fellows. He was once married and had two daughters.
