CHELSEA --- John B. Atwood died Sunday, February 28th, at his home in Sharon, Mass., where he was spending the winter with his family, after a brief illness with pneumonia. His remains arrived here Monday evening, accompanied by the members of his family. The funeral was held from his home on Maple Avenue Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, the Rev. George E. Lake officiating, and the services were in charge of H. N. Mattison, assisted by H. O. Bixby. The remains were placed in the vault to await interment in the spring, the bearers being H. O Bixby, E. A. Corwin, E. D. Barnes, and W. S. Hatch.

Mr. Atwood was a native of this town and during the most of his life had been identified with the business interest until about 17 years ago, when the Union block was burned, in which building was located the store of which he was proprietor, and of which he had been associated with during a long and successful business career.

He was a veteran of the Civil War, was twice wounded, and had an enviable record as a good soldier. He was about sixty-eight years old and is survived by a widow and two sons. He John M. Atwood and Fred B. Atwood, both of whom reside in Boston; also by one brother, James Atwood, a resident of Maple Avenue.

Among those from out of town who were here to attend the funeral were a nephew, Sidney Mills, from Lynn. Mass., and Walter S. Goss of Montpelier.
