Rutland Daily Herald, Dec. 18, 1899:
Ashley D. Francisco died of congestion of the lungs at his home, No. 99 Center street, at 1.45 o'clock yesterday afternoon, after having been confined to the house about four weeks.
Mr. Francisco was born in West Haven in 1823. He was graduated from Oberlin college and was teaching school in Missouri when the war broke out. He enlisted in the 23d New York battery and was stationed as Newbern, N.C., during the yellow fever epidemic there the last year of the war. It was he who conceived and carried out the plan of burning the Newbern limestone to get lime to fight the fever. After the war he was employed for two years by the Presbyterian freedman's bureau of New York to start schools for the colored people in the south. After this he came to Rutland, where he lived for 25 years, engaged in the insurance business. He was a member of the Congregational church of this city.
Mr. Francisco was married at Fort Wayne, Ind., in 1863 to Miss Julia Landon of Cornwall, who survives him. He leaves two sons, Dr. H.A. Francisco of this city and Rollo J. Francisco of New York; two brothers, M.J. Francisco of this city and Cullen Francisco of Missouri, and three sisters, Mrs. R.I. Landon of Middlebury, Mrs. James Doren of Whitehall and Miss Abbie Francisco of Missouri.
The funeral will be at the house at 2 o'clock Wednesday afternoon.
