Morrisville Messenger: Feb, 8, 1905
The sudden death of L. S. French, which occurred at his home near M.H. Boardman's Mill, last Friday morning, came as a shock to the entire community, as he was in his usual health up to the time of death, and was on his post of duty at Boardman's Mill the day previous to his death.. About an hour previous to his death he arose and put some wood on the fire. Upon hearing him make a peculiar noise, as if he was choking, Mrs. French spoke to him, and receiving no response investigated, , thinking he might be ill, and found that he was dead. Mrs. French was alone in the house, and ran to the Boardman redidence, where a physician was summoned by telephone.Death was due to heart dsease from which he had been suffering for many years.
The funeral was held at the home Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. C.C. Dt. Clare of the Congregational Church officiating. The bearers were, William G McClintock, Geo. A. Cheney, Geo. W. Currier, and James Stein.The remains were placed in the vault.
Mr. French was born in Orange, Mass. 60 years ago last September, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Frederick French, who were the parents of eight children, four boys and four girls. He is survived by four sisters and two brothers, one brother having died in Massachusetts about two weeks ago.
He enlisted in the 26th Massachusetts Volunteers serving nearly three years, and was at Petersburg at the time of the blowing up of the city. He was married to Aurora Edgerton, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ed. Edgerton of Hyde Park, and lived it that town for several years, coming to Morristown about 25 years ago.He resided on a farm about two miles east of this village on the Elmore Road until a few years ago, the place now being occupied by his son Fred. E., who with his mother is the only survivor. The deceased was a good citizen and neighbor, and leaves a large circle of friends to mourn his loss.The bereaved family have the sympathy of the community in their great loss.
