Obituary

Edwin A. Williams died at his home here Monday night. He was born in Wheelock in 1842. He enlisted in Co. K., 11th Vermont Volunteers, and had a long and honorable record, serving in a number of important engagements. He had a very pleasant recollection of Gen. Philip Sheridan and his appearance as he came onto the battlefield of Cedar Creek, after his memorable ride.

Mr. Williams was married to Augusta McKenzie of Danville, Feb. 8, 1883, living for a year or two at Wheelock, and since then at Danville. Two daughters were born to them; Goldie, now Mrs. Marshall Bixby, and Miss Ethel.

Mr. Williams was a devoted husband and father, and an honorable business man. He has served as selectman and grand juror for many years. He had been a patient sufferer from Bright's disease. The funeral on Thursday will be under the direction of the Knights of Pythias, of which he was a member, Rev. C. G. Gorse officiating.
