Barnard---Death of Dr. Eben Wilson.
In the death of Dr. Wilson, Barnard loses one more familiar figure. Although for many years following his profession as a dentist in Boston, he always found time to visit his old home here, which he made after the death of his parents at his brothers, George E. Wilson.
He was endowed with a most admirable disposition, and like others of the old school, he had a strong passion for a good horse, and owned many good ones in his lifetime.
His funeral was held Saturday. Many friends came from Springfield, Mass., Woodstock, Rochester, Royalton, and Hartland. The floral tributes were among the largest and best seen here in years. Services were conducted by the Rev. Mr. Lewis, of the Episcopal Church. The bearers were, George Kelly, Charles Aiken. Penn Atwood, Peter F. Riley; conductor, H. A. Wood; interment at Hartland, Vt.
