Obituary

Edward Jarvis, who has been a great sufferer for the last two years, passed away last Monday. Mr. Jarvis was a soldier in the war of the Rebellion, and came home with shattered health, and had been ailing for many years. He took to his bed last June, and failed gradually till the end.

Mr Jarvis was born in Melbourne, P. Q. On the 2d day of August, 1845. On November 6. 1897 he was married to Miss Sarah Jane Wilkey, and for about twenty-eight years has made his home in Barton.

He was a man much thought of by his many friends. He bore his suffering with heroic fortitude up to the end. He was an honorable member of the Grand Army Post, though unable to attend many of the meetings.

His funeral was attended at the M. E. Church last Wednesday, W. C. Johnson officiating. He leaves to mourn his loss his wife, two daughters, Mrs. Charles Lahue, Mrs. John Rash, and a son Fred, of this place, and a daughter, Mrs. George Donald, of Springfield, Mass, besides many more distant relatives.

Mr. and Mrs. McClure, of Richmond, P. Q. and Alfred Walkey, of St. Johnsbury, Mr. A. Wilkey, of Island Pond, were the mourners from away who attended the funeral. The remains were interred in the Village cemetery.
