DEATH OF J.C. RICHARDSON
Joseph C. Richardson, while sitting in his chair at his home about 9 0'clock Tuesday morning, suddenly passed from earthly cares. The deceased was born in Portland, Maine 72 years ago. During the War of the Rebellion he served in a Massachusetts regiment until promoted to be a Lieutenent in the 38th U.S. Colored Infantry. At the Battle of Fort Harrison, Va, he was wounded in the left lung and carried the ball 21 years, when it was removed by the late Dr. E.J. Hall.
A widow and four children survive him. The children are Elwin C. of Boston, Alice M. of Worcester, Mass., Thomas A. of Hyde Park, and Horatio S. of Morrisville. For many years he had been a resident of this village, and vicinity, and enjoyed a extended acquaintance.
The funeral will be held at the Universalist Church Thursday at 10 o'clock, Rev. Dr. Booth officiating, and will be attended by the members of the G.A.R. ( of which he was a member) and the W.R.C. in a body.
