Obituary

Death of G. M. Marsh
Had Been a Respected Citizen of Bennington for 48 Years

George M. Marsh died early Tuesday morning from a shock with which he was stricken the previous afternoon. Mr. Marsh was acting as watchman at the hospital on the town farm when he was attacked but managed to make it to the house.

Mr. Marsh came here from South Lee, Mass., 48 years ago and for nearly half a century has been an honest, hard working and respected citizen. He was 71 years of age and was a veteran of the Second Vermont. He was a member of the Methodist church and also of Caster post.

For many years he was employed in the mills here but of late has worked as a nurse. The death of his wife a few years ago was a great shock to him and he has not been well since. He is survived by one daughter, Miss Lillian Marsh.

The funeral will be held from his late home this afternoon. Rev. W. H. Washburne will officiate. The bearers will be members of the Caster post and the Methodist church.
