The community was very much shocked last Saturday morning by the sudden death of Mr. George W. Quimby. He was drawing boards away from Hastings' mill and piling them up out in the yard. He had just handed up the last board of the load to the man on the pile when he dropped dead. Mr. Quimby was a civil war veteran, and belonged to Woodbury post, G. A. R., also a member of Moose River, F. & A. M. and Adah Chapter, O. E. S. The funeral was held at the Universalist church Tueday at 2 o'clock, the Rev. Grant Van Blarcom officiating. The Masons and ladies of the Eastern Star attended in a body, and the Masons performed the ceremonies at the grave.
