Obituary

WAS NATIVE OF VERMONT.
James M. Ladd, Civil War Veteran, Hanged Himself.

Fremont, N.H., July 8. James M. Ladd, a veteran of the Civil war, committed suicide Monday afternoon by hanging himself. His lifeless body was found hanging to a tree, a short distance from the residence of Louis Gardner, where he has made his home for several years.

Mr. Ladd has been twice married, and leaves three sons, William of Danville, Joseph of Bristol and Daniel of Laconia; also a sister, Mrs. Martha Tewksbury of Danville.

Mr. Ladd was a member of Company K, Fifteenth regiment, New Hampshire volunteers. At the time of his enlistment, he resided in Danville, coming to this town about 40 years ago. He was employed by the Spaulding and Frost company for many years until failing health compelled his retirement from active work.

Mr. Ladd was born in Worcester, Vt., in 1843. Despondency, caused by ill health, was, without doubt, the cause of his rash act.
