Robert W. Laird died last Thursday afternoon after a sickness which lasted a number of weeks. Funeral services were held in the church, and he was buried in St. Johnsbury;

Capt. Laird was a veteran of the Civil War, was one of the pioneer granite dealers in St. Johnsbury, and the organizer of the Presbyterian Church in that place. After meetings ceased to be held in that church he joined the North Congregational Church, and at the time of his death was a member of the Congregational Church of Barnet.

The last few years his residence was in St. Johnsbury, he ran a garden farm a couple miles north of the village. He has resided in Barnet about two years and will be missed by the community.
