In the unexpected death of Rufus Kinsley, already mentioned in this paper, the town loses a valuable and beloved citizen, who has spent a large part of his life here. A veteran of the Civil War, a servant of the town in political and civic duties, a counsellor and helper in probate and pension business, a prominence member of the Methodist Church, a good farmer, and a most genial and kindly friend to all, he will long be missed on our streets and in our gatherings, and long remembered for the good he has done. His wife preceded him to the life beyond two years ago. Three sons of this town ( Lowell), and two sons and a daughter residing in other places besides brothers and many other relatives, remain to cherish his virtues and follow in his footsteps. Two pastors of Lowell and Pastor Shaeffer of Orleans united in conducting tender and sympathetic funeral services at his the home, and the choir comforted all hearts by the appropriate songs of Christian Faith.
