Thursday - 16 Mar 1899

The body of Jesse G. Taylor, who died in Amsterdam, N.Y., where he was visiting his daughter, was brought here Wednesday evening and placed in his home at Maple Grove. He was born in Rochdale, England and was 67 years old. After coming to this country he first lived in North Adams and then came to this town [Adams], about 34 years ago. He was a dresser tender and worked for a long time in Phillips & Sons mill at Maple Grove. He was a veteran of the Civil war, having been a member of Company A, 14th Vermont volunteers. He was a brave soldier, a man of good character and disposition and a good citizen. He was also a member of George E. Sayles post G.A.R.

He leaves a wife, a son and daughter and two step sons, Jesse of this town, Mrs. Albert Wood of Amsterdam, N.Y., George G. Coates, and John Taylor. The latter was adopted.

The funeral was held this afternoon from the house and George E. Sayles post, G.A.R., attended. Rev. Richard Woffdon of Apponague, R.I., nephew of the deceased, officiated.
