Obituary

VETERANS GOING FAST.

Fourth Member of Enosburgh Falls Post to Die This Year.

Enosburgh Falls, June 17. - Orrin Ward died early Saturday morning after an illness of several months with blood poisoning. Mr. Ward was born February 24, 1827, and was therefore in his 81st year. He was a veteran of the Civil War, having served in Co. A, 5th Vermont. He was twice married, his first wife having died in 1873. Of his immediate family he is survived by the widow only. Mr. Ward was a member of Pixley Post, G.A. R., and is the fourth comrade who has passed away since the year began, the others being Judd, Chamberlin and Flood. The funeral was held at his late home Sunday at one o'clock, the Rev. F.E. White officiating, and burial was in the Main street cemetery. Music was furnished by a male quartette consisting of C.H. Abell, W.W. Hutchinson, W.H. Yaw and J.O. Kimball.
