W. B. STILES -- William Boardman Stiles, who died at his home in West Glover, Jan. 26, was 81 years old, having been born in Morristown Oct. 28, 1840. Death was the result of a general breakdown resulting in Bright's disease.
He married Luella Farman, of Troy, at Albany, March 28, 1866. Eight children survive the union as follows; Fred W. of Boston, Edith A. of Malden. Mass., Cora L. of Lyndon, Carrie M. of Charlestown N. H., Roberta E. of West Glover, Anna Mae of Lyndon Center, Roy G. of Barton, and Ray F. of South Riverside, N. J.. He also leaves three brothers, Dr. M. F. Stiles of Westboro, Mass, Pliny of Boston, and James L. of Concord, N.H.
Mr. Stiles served between three and four years in the Civil War and was a member of the G. A. R. and the Masonic order. His principal occupation has been that of a farmer, but since his retirement has enjoyed the summers at a cottage on Willoughby Lake. He was a man of wide reading, and an interesting conversationalist. The funeral was held at West Glover Saturday, and burial was in the West Glover cemetery, Rev. J. J. Hutchinson officiated.
