Obituary

Middlebury--Alvin Williamson died Sunday at 9 a. m., after a weeks illness, aged 54 years. The cause of his death is somewhat in doubt, but is said to be inflammation of the bowels.

Mr. Williamson had a large acquaintance in this section. He, and three of his brothers, who survive him were in the army during the Civil War.

He leaves a wife, and two children. He was a member of the Knights of Honor, and of William Russell Post G.A.R., and these organizations attended the funeral, which took place at 10 o'clock on Tuesday morning.

Funeral for Alvin Williamson:

The funeral services of Alvin Williamson were held at 10 o'clock Tuesday morning at the late residence of the deceased, and there was a large attendance, including the Knights of Honor, and Post William P. Russell, G.A.R. to which Mr. Williamson belonged. The funeral service at the house was conducted by A. DeF. Palmer, pastor of the Baptist church, and Rev. T. J. Thompson of the Methodist church. The procession to the grave was a long one, and Post Russell, with several members of the East Middlebury and Weybridge Post acted as an escort. The stores in town were generally closed, and the curtains drawn during the passing of the procession.
