Andrew J. Lawrence died at his home in Peacham Thursday morning, after an illness of nearly two months. Mr. Lawrence was married in March, 1912 to Mrs. Ellen Nye Gray, a friend of his youth. The first of May they came to Peacham, where they have since made their home. His pleasant, genial manner, general intelligence, and his musical talent, made him loved and respected by all that knew him, and he will be much missed.
He had been a soldier in the Third Vermont Regiment, and later held an important position in the mint. He loved music, played the violin, while Mrs. Lawrence accompanied him on the piano, and together they gave many a fine concert.
Tuesday morning a short service was held at the house. and he was taken to Plainfield, his former home, for burial, and the funeral service is to be held Saturday. His nephew, Mr, Batchelder, came for Mrs. Lawrence and Mrs. Choate, who had helped to care for him during the last weeks of his illness accompanied them.
