Obituary

NORTHFIELD-CHARLES W. PILLSBURY CIVIL WAR VETERAN
DIED MONDAY NIGHT;

Charles W. Pillsbury, a Civil War veteran, passed away Monday night at his home on Vine Street. He had been in poor health for some time, but able to be about, and death was very sudden.

Mr. Pillsbury was born in Shapley, Me., April 25, 1848, and came to Northfield to live over 30 years ago. He enlisted in the Civil War at the outbreak and served two enlistments, one in the Cavalry, and one in the Infantry.

Aside from his wife, the deceased is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Freeman Lovett of Montpelier, and Mrs. Fred Peaslee of Penacook, N.H.; also two sons, Jessee Pillsbury of Washington, D.C., and Clarence A. Pillsbury of Peacham, and five grandchildren.

Mr. Pillsbury was one of Northfield highly respected citizens, and a man who had many friends and acquaintances in the community in which he lived.

Funeral services will be held Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the home, with burial in Elmwood cemetery. The members of William H. Boynton Post, G. A. R., of which deceased was a member, will attend the service in a body, and conduct the Grand Army burial service at the grave.
