Gideon W. Perry
The Vermont Journal, July 12, 1918
Funeral services of Gideon W. Perry were held at his late residence Tuesday morning of last week. Rev. Francis Parker, assisted by Rev. E. W. Sturtevant, officiated. Miss Florence Sturtevant rendered two solos, "The Strength of the Hills” and "In the Garden,” accompanied by Mrs. Underwood on the piano. Burial was at Post Mills beside his wife who passed away several years ago. Mr. Perry was born in Thetford, January 6, 1840, son of Nusom and Hortense Perry. When a young boy he came with his parents to West Fairlee to a farm which was his until he came to Hartland four years ago. During his employment in Somerville, Mass., for a short period he enlisted in the 39th Massachusetts volunteers, serving two and one half years in the Civil war. In July, 1874, he married Linda Fallansbee of West Fairlee and two children, Frederick and Irma, were born to them, the son dying in early childhood. Mr. Perry was of a social nature, a good citizen and neighbor and will be missed by the friends whom he has made during his short residence in Hartland. Those called here by his death were a sister, Mrs. H. C. Goodell, son, Henry, and daughter, Julia, of West Fairlee, Mrs. Grace Hooker of Lowell and Mrs. Laura B. Penniman of Providence.
