Former Montpelier Man Buried at Northfield Tuesday Afternoon A War Veteran.

The funeral of John Henry Hurley, for a time a resident of Montpelier, was held from his late home in Northfield Tuesday afternoon, Rev. T.S. Ockford officiating. Interment was in Elmwood Cemetery.

In speaking of the demise, the Northfield News says, "Mr. Hurley was a veteran of the Civil War and had a highly creditable record. Before he was mustered out he was promoted to commissary sergeant and was finally mustered out March 14, 1866, being in service nearly five years. Mr. Hurley has been a worthy citizen of Northfield for 53 years."
