Obituary

NORTHFIELD.

Atwood C. Bullock, Who Died Friday After Long Illness, Much Respected.

In the death of Atwood C. Bullock, which occurred Friday, Northfield loses a familiar figure from her streets and an honest, upright citizen from her midst. For a year he had been in failing health, but his last illness was of short duration and his death was due to hardening of the arteries. Mr. and Mrs. Bullock were in Hadwick visiting their daughter, Mrs. William H. Hardin, when Mr. Bullock was taken ill. Tuesday he was brought to his home here and survived only two days. Mr. Bullock was born in Berlin, November 16, 1842, the only son of Horatio A. and Betsey S. Bullock. For 45 years he lived in his native town, and upon his marriage to Marie L. Emerson in Montpelier, March 11, 1868, went to the old home to live. Three sons and two daughters were born to them, all of whom survive, with the widow; Joseph M., Leroy A., of this town; Van H., of Worcester, Mass.; two daughters, Mrs. M. P. Blake, of Barre, and Mrs. W.H. Hardin of Hardwick. Mr. Bullock was a veteran of the Civil war and a member of the local G.A. R. Fifteen years ago he moved here from Berlin and for 14 years has been the sexton of Elmwood cemetery. The funeral was held Monday from his late home, Rev. Walker Dole of Enfield, N.H., a friend and former pastor of the Universalist church, officiating. The three sons, two sons-in-law, W.H. Hardin and M.P. Blake, and a nephew, George Emerson, acted as bearers, and interment was in Elmwood cemetery. The members of the G.A.R. attended as a body and acted as an escort to the cemetery.
