George Otis Tyler
Marsh O. Perkins received a telegram Wednesday afternoon announcing the death that morning, of Col. Geo. O. Tyler, at his home in West Somerville, Mass. He was for many years connected with the Shepard & Morse Lumber Co., of Burlington, Vt., and was well known throughout Vermont and Canada. He was prominently identified with the Masonic fraternity in the provinces and state, and has gained a national reputation as a long time office bearer of the Supreme Councils of the Scottish Rite, Northern Masonic Jurisdiction. He was also prominent in the councils of Templar Masonry in the country and was past Grand Master of the Grand Lodge, F. & A. M., of Quebec. He was a veteran of the Civil War and gained distinction as an officer of Massachusetts troops, for bravery on the battlefield. He was a member of the Loyal Legion, and was a member of Governor Dillingham's staff. He was in the 75th year of his age, and is survived by his wife, two daughters and a son.
Funeral services will be held at his late home, Saturday morning of this week.
