FUNERALS Henry E. Smith

Norwich Bulletin, Monday, October 30, 1911

Saturday afternoon the funeral of Henry E. Smith was held from the chapel rooms of the Henry Allen & Son, the services being conducted by Rev. A. J. Wilcox of Montville. There was a number of floral forms and the casket was draped with the American flag.

The bearers were members of Sedgwick post, No. 1, G.A.R., as follows: Lemuel A. Manning, Edwin Spalding, Capt. George Crocker and George Saunders. Burial was in Yantic cemetery, where a commital service was read.

Henry E. Smith was born in Chester, Vt., the son of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Smith. He served in the Civil War as a member of the first Connecticut cavalry and was a member of Sedgwick post for a number of years. After the war he was a clerk for the late C. D. Browning, the Greeneville grocer, and was active in the social life of the village. Mr. Smith married and was the father of two children. About 35 years ago he moved to Quaker Hill, in Waterford, and followed the calling of a carpenter. He drew a pension of $24 a month. Some time ago his mind became impaired and he was placed in the hospital. He is the last of his immediate family.
