Obituary

JOHN HOWLAND:

John Howland, for some forty years past, a resident of Montpelier, died on Saturday, aged 69 years. Barre was Mr. Howland's place of birth, and his wife was Lucinda Gould, of that place. He was a brick-mason by trade. He served three years in the First Vermont Battery in the late war.

Funeral services were held at the Baptist Church Monday, Rev. Mr. Mason officiating, and the remains were taken to Cutler cemetery for interment.

Deceased had in his possession until recently, a cane, which had been held in his family for seven generations, and was originally the property of John Howland, who was one of the passengers on the “Mayflower”in 1620, and who was the last to die of that band of pilgrims.
