Death of Barney H. Stickney
Barney H. Stickney died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. C. R. Lawrence, 170 Lake st., at 9:30 o'clock Thursday night. He had been in failing health for about a year but was able to be out until last week Thursday, when he took his bed and gradually failed until the end came. Death was due to natural causes incidental to old age. Barney H. Stickney was born in Highgate August 25, 1826, his parents being Joseph Stickney, a native of Dorchester, N. H., and Jerusha Hubbell. He was the eighth son of a family of ten children, only one of whom survives, Miss Sarah L. Stickney, of West Enosburg. Mr. Stickney came to St. Albans when a young man and at the outbreak of the Civil War enlisted in Co. C, 1st Vt. Vol., and served four months, the most of which time he was confined to the hospital by illness. After his return from the war he married Mary L. Webber August 25, 1861, their union being blessed by seven children. Five of them survive. They are: Carter G. and William W., of Manchester, N. H., Dean R. of Berlin, N. H., Mrs. C. R. Lawrence, of this city, and Miss Lillian H., of Manchester, N. H. Mr. Stickney was formerly a member of A. R. Hurlbut Post, No. 60, G. A. R., but took a withdrawal card and joined Joseph Fresche post of Manchester, N. H., where he had passed part of his time for the last few years. The comrades of A. R. Hurlbut Post, No. 60, G. A. R., have been invited to attend the funeral Saturday afternoon.
