Death of the Stage Driver

George W. Varney died Wednesday, July 22, at the home of his sister, Mrs. C. E. Green. He was born March 13, 1836, at the old Varney homestead, where he had always made his home. He had a severe illness last February, from which he never recovered. He was a volunteer in the civil war, enlisting in Co. B,. 15th Regiment, Vermont Volunteers, remaining for nine months. For twelve summers he had charge of the stables at the Profile House, White Mountains, where he was highly esteemed by the proprietor, Mr. Greenleaf. For the past six years Mr. Varney has had the contract for carrying the mail on the stage route between North Danville and St. Johnsbury, driving the stage himself a greater part of the time.

He was a kind and obliging neighbor and esteemed and respected by all who knew him. He leaves three brothers and two sisters, the oldest, Jack, of San Francisco, Cal.; Charles, a traveling salesman; Fred H., and Mrs. Stephen Eastman of Lyndonville, and Mrs. C. E. Green of this place who, with her husband, have tenderly cared for him during his sickness. The funeral was held at the house Friday afternoon, Rev. B. D. Newell officiating.
