At 5:30 o'clock on the afternoon Tuesday, Aug. 24, James Armstrong died at his home in Glover Village, aged almost 74 years. He was born in Mooers, N.Y., Aug. 20, 1840. He was a veteran of the Civil war, having served in Company F, 96th New York state infantry, and as an artificer in Co. 9, 1st regiment New York Engineers. He was a member of the M.E. church and although in January of 1897 he was stricken with a shock which caused him to be totally deaf, he was always found in his seat in church until the past few years when his health failed him to such an extent that he was unable to be there. All through his affliction, he was often heard to say he was resigned to God's will and never complained. He is survived by his wife, who tenderly cared for him until the end came, and one brother and a number of nieces and nephews. Those from away who came to attend his funeral were, Oblie Armstrong, Julius Armstrong, Mr. and Mrs. James Rogers and daughters, Ruth and Hazel, Mrs. Gertrude Stone and daughter, Evelyn, all of Middlebury, Mrs. B.S. Kendall of Montreal and Mrs. Rea Goodrich of Bellows Falls.
