Obituary

Otis B. Ward, aged 80 years, who has been suffering with heart disease, passed away monday morning. He was born April 19, 1834, at Dover.

He served in the Civil War with the sixteenth Vermont regiment, who played such an important part in repulsing Picketts famous charge at the battle of Gettysburg. After serving his enlistment he was honorably discharged, and since that time he has lived practically his entire life in this locality.

In civil life Mr. Ward has been noted as an honorable, upright man, accommodating and painstaking in his friendships, a kind and benevolent neighbor, who will be greatly missed. He was a member of the G. A. R., has served them as master. He has also been honored by his town, as he was a notary at the time of his death.
