In Death of Eugene McCarty Town Loses One Who Always Spent Summers Here.

The funeral services of Eugene McCarty were held in the Congregational church at 1:30 p. m. Tuesday. The officiating clergyman was Rev. W. A. Remsic, pastor of the church of which Mr. McCarty was a member. The funeral was largely attended, former neighbors and townspeople being present.

Eugene McCarty was born Sept. 10, 1843, in Ireland, coming to this country with his parents in his early childhood. He was the oldest in a family of nine children, his parents being Eugene and Margaret McCarty. He was married Nov. 30, 1882, to Grace M. Phelps, who died Nov. 15, 1885.

Mr. McCarty served as a private in the Civil war in Co. C, 7th Vermont volunteers, and was a member of Ainsworth post, No. 36, G. A. R. He spent his winters in Richmond, Va., and his summers in Waitsfield, to which place he was deeply attached. Last spring, while here, he took great pride in gardening for Uncle Sam and further showed his patriotism by doing guard duty at Camp Stuart, Newport News, Va., for a number of weeks. For the past few years he had been in failing health, with serious heart trouble.

The end came suddenly in the hospital, where he had been but 10 days, on Thursday afternoon, Jan. 3, at 3 p. m. The remains were shipped north by express and interment was in the family lot in the village cemetery. The bearers were Henry A. Phelps, D. B. Hale, E. S. Joslin and Charles Neill. Ainsworth post was represented by H. N. Bushnell, A. E. Mehuron and Wells Palmer. Those attended from out of town were H. A. Phelps and daughter, Miss Evelyn Phelps, of Barre, his niece, Mrs. Mabel Dudley and Mrs. Dean Hale, and the latter's husband, of Montpelier.
