Nov. 7, 1905


The funeral of B.B. Barney, who died at his home here Sunday, was held this morning at the church of the Nativity. Jesse Jewett Post, G.A.R., attended in a body. Mr. Barney was about 75 years old. He had been an invalid for many years. He was born in Swanton and passed his life here except during the time he was in the army, having enlisted in Co. F, 7th Inf. Vt. Vols., at the braking out of the war. He served through the war and was promoted to be sergeant. He was always considered a good soldier, and was well thought of by his officers. After the war and his discharge from the army, he returned to this town, and went to farming which occupation he had followed ever since until ill health compelled him to give up manual labor. He was married twice, his first wife being Miss Malinda Marvin. His second wife was Miss Mary Quinn, who survives him. He is also survived by five children, two by his first and three by his second wife.
