Obituary

WATERBURY

Death of Daniel Fordham Removed Oldest Member of Dillingham Post, G. A. R.

The funeral of Daniel Fordham was held from the Congregational church Friday, Rev. William L. Boicourt officiating. The burial was in charge of Edwin Dillingham Post, G. A. R., members of the post acting as bearers. Mr. Fordham, as the oldest member of the post, was to assist in unfurling the flag on the day of the celebration here, but was taken ill at that time and died with pleuro pneumonia. Mr. Fordham enlisted from Plattsburg and was a member of the 118th New York. He was born in Peru, N. Y., Feb. 9, 1836, and 57 years ago married Miss Emily Snow, who passed away five years ago. He is survived by one sister, Mrs. Sarah Hill of Montpelier, and two sons, Charles Fordham of this town and William Fordham of Barre, and two daughters, Mrs. Emma Fisher of this town and Mrs. Alice Thayer of Concord, N. H.; also four grandchildren.
