Death and Funeral of W. G. McClintock
William G. McClintock, one of Morrisville's most prominent and highly esteemed citizens, died at his home on Congress Street on Wednesday, June 18. Death was due to an attack of pneumonia, from which he suffered only two days.
Although Mr. McClintock had been in failing health for the past two or three years, he had been able to be about the house and had entertained his friends up to within a few days of his death.
The funeral was held Friday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock from the Universalist Church, Rev. George F. Morton officiating, and was in charge of Mt. Vernon Lodge, No. 8, F&AM, and the masonic burial service was given in an impressive manner by A. C. Sulham, past master of the lodge, of which the deceased was the oldest member.
William G. McClintock was a descendant of Scotch and Irish ancestry. His grandfather, William McClintock was born in Springfield, NY. He married a Miss Grout, a member of the celebrated Grout Family of Vermont. He was born in Elmore in 1838, the son of Luman and Laura Brighan McClintock. There he was reared and there he completed his schooling at the age of 13 years. He then entered the printing and woolen mills in Manchester N.H.
In 1863 he enlisted in Company C. 17th regiment, Infantry, as a Corporal. On July 30th, 1864, he was taken prisoner in front of Petersburg, and was confined in a prison in Danville until in October, 1864, when he was paroled, and sent home on a furlough, and was honorably discharged from service in May of 1865, on account of disability. After the war Mr. McClintock came to Morristown and for three years was superintendent of Malvern Stock Farm.
On Dec. 4, 1857, Mr. McClintock married Elizabeth Davis, of Bradford. One child was born to this union, William B. McClintock, now a prosperous resident of Lynn, Mass., where he has been engaged in business for a number of years.
Mr. & Mrs. McClintock for many years resided on a farm on the Randolph Road, until they moved to Morrisville where Mrs. McClintock died 12 years ago this month. Mr. McClintock was superintendent of the celebrated Forest Park Farm at Brandon from 1893 to 1900, after which Mr. &. Mrs. McClintock purchased the home on Congress Street, where their last days were spent.
Mr. McClintock held various offices of trust in this town during his earlier residence here, including selectman and lister. He was a prominent member of the James M. Warner Post, GAR, in which he served as commander. He was also a member of the Eastern Star, and held the office of worthy patron, and was instrumental in organizing several chapters throughout the state.
