Obituary

DEATH OF JOHN GRANT

John W. Grant died at his home near Red Village, Sunday, Nov, 29, of Bright's disease. Mr Grant was born in Concord, Nov. 6, 1830, and was 73 years of age. His disease was of several years standing, and he had been quite feeble for some months, but was confined to bed less than two days. After a council of physicians had pronounced his case hopeless, Miss Lucia, was sent for from Northfield, Mass. where she was attending school, and she arrived Sunday morning in season to be warmly greeted by her father.

Mr. Grant was twice married, the first time to Miss Lutheria Quimby of Concord, who died in 1874, and by whom he had four children: Emmett, Claridus A. , Ulysses S. , and Mrs. Lena Arnold. In August of 1875, he married Mrs. Eliza (Nichols( Isham of Lunenburg, and they had the following children;John W, , Ira N. , William F. , Lcuia E. , Perley E. , Frank, and Ora.

In November, 1876, the family moved to this place, which has been their home ever since. Mr. Grant served three years in the War of the Rebellion, in Co. 11th Regiment, first as musician, and later as artificer, and was a member of the G. A, R. He was well known by everyone in the vicinity, for having followed the business of painting and paperhanging for 45 years, few homes of any preteutions are without specimens of his work.

Genial, accommodating, and a great lover of music, Mr. Grant will long be remembered by a large circle of friends

During the pastorate of Rev. W. C. Johnson, Mr and Mrs. Grant joined the Methodist Church. The funeral services will occur at the home Thursday morning at 9 o'clock, will be conducted by Rev. W. R. Mather. The interment, at Mr, Grant's request, will be at East Concord in the family lot.
