DEATH OF J. W. WRISLEY

News was received here Sunday of the death of J.W. Wrisley, which occurred at the home of his nephew in Aurelia, Iowa, last Sunday morning at 4 o'clock. Mr. Wrisley left Stowe Oct 20, to visit relatives in the west, and was to have started for home the day he died. His death was very sudden and was probably due to heart disease, from which he was a great sufferer.

Jacob Willard Wrisley was born in Williston, Oct. 27, 1844. He was united in marriage to Laura Turner of Duxbury about 48 years ago, her death preceding his by three years. He has resided in Stowe for the last 25 years, and has a host of friends in this place, who were sadly shocked to learn of his demise.

The deceased enlisted in the 2nd Vt., Co. D, and served three years, being in 35 hard fought battles, including the Battle of Gettysburg.

Mr. Wrisley had been a member of the Methodist Church of Waterbury Center for 23 years, and was a regular attendant at its services. He was also a member of the G.A.R. Post of that place.

The remains will be brought here for burial.

He is survived by two sisters, Mrs. Rhoda Laudrin of Red Cloud, Neb., and Mrs. Fannie Anderson of Dijon Hill, S. Dak., one brother Charles of Essex Junction, an adopted daughter, Mrs Leo Edson of Stowe, and two sons, O. W. Wrisley of Morrisville, and Ralph Wrisley who resided with him on the home farm. A brother, who resided in California, died about two weeks ago.
