The Vermont Journal, October 29, 1904
Ozro Meacham, a prominent citizen and business man of Brandon, Vt., died very suddenly, Sunday morning, while at church. He had just entered the church accompanied by his daughter, Miss Sarah Meacham when he was stricken with heart failure while standing in his pew and lived only a few seconds.
Mr. Meacham was born at Potsdam, N.Y., August 28, and went to Brandon, when two years of age. He was the oldest merchant in Brandon, having been engaged in the clothing business since 1851. He was a democrat in politics, had held nearly all of the town offices and represented the town in the legislature in 1884. In Masonic circles Mr. Meacham was very prominent. He was master of St. Paul's lodge, No. 25, F. & A. M., for thirteen years, and was grand master of masons of Vermont in 1883 and 1884. He was a life member of the Grand Royal Arch chapter of the state. Mr. Meacham was a civil war veteran, and was a member of C. J. Ormsbee Post, G.A.R. of which he was quartermaster for twenty-five years. For seven years he was a trustee of the Vermont Soldiers' home. Besides Miss Sarah Meacham, he is survived by three other daughters, Mrs. C. R. Fish of Cambridge, Mass., Mrs. T. W. Rogers of Burlington and Mrs. Charles H. Walker of New York city, and a sister, Mrs. W. B. Robinson of Brandon. He was buried, Wednesday, with the Masonic burial service, conducted by the grand lodge of Vermont.
