Obituary

Braintree

David Steele has been in quite poor health of late, and that long looked for pension has not yet put in an appearance.

David Steele, a town charge, was buried Sunday, overseer Laport conducting the funeral.

Source: West Randolph Herald and News, Feb. 4, 1892

The item concerning "David Steele being a town charge" was incorrect in many particulars, as a long communication from a valued correspondent shows conclusively.
