Harvey of Barnet, June 16, 1871, who died 20 years ago. He is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Louis C. Hall of Wallingford, Conn., and a sister in Nova Scotia. He was an active member of the Passumpsic Baptist Church and had been noble grand of the Barnet Odd Fellows Lodge. The patriotic societies of St. Johnsbury will attend his funeral Thursday afternoon which will be held in the Passumpsic Baptist Church.
