Obituary

CHARLES HENRY UPHAM

Charles Henry Upham, 66, died Wednesday of heart disease at his home on Guilford Street. He had been in ill health since last autumn.

Mr. Upham was born in Leminster, Mass., June 6 1836, and went from there to East Putney when a young man. He carried on a farm until 10 years ago, when he bought a house on Guilford Street, in which he has lived ever since.

He married Lizzie Barbour, of Cumberland, Maine, while he lived in East Putney. She survives him, with two children, Mrs. E. R. Morse of East Northfield, Mass., and George Upham of Brattleboro. Another son, Edward died 11 years ago in Holyoke, Mass. Mr Upham also leaves a brother, Albert B. Upham in Leominster.

The funeral was held at 10 o'clock today, Rev. N. A. Wood of West Brattleboro, and Rev. F. S. Smith, formerly pastor of the Baptist Church in West Brattleboro officiating. The burial will be in East Putney this afternoon. Mr. Uphan was a member of the West Brattleboro Baptist Church, and of Sedgwick Post, G. A. R. He served three years in Company G., 11th Vermont Volunteers, and was at all the battles of the Army of the Potomac, after the battle of the Wilderness.
