Levi A. Persons, one of the well known men of this place, died at his home in the old Nutt farm on Town hill, Saturday, at the age of 68 years. Heart trouble, with which he had suffered some time, was the immediate cause of his death.

The funeral was held from the house at 2 o'clock Monday afternoon, Rev. J. Edward Wright officiating and the burial will be in Cutler cemetery.

Mr. Persons was a native of East Montpelier and had lived in town most of his life. He was a thorough horse trainer and enjoyed a reputation that extended over a wide section. He was twice married, his first wife being Miss Sophia Cummins and his second Miss Bettie Luce, who died three years ago. He is survived by one daughter, Mrs. George Bliss

Mr. Persons was a sturdy vigorous character, a man who made many friends, and his demise will be deplored.
