Obituary

MORRISVILLE -- The funeral of Marshall C. Mower, who died Friday, was held at the house Monday afternoon, at 2 o'clock. The Rev. C. C. St. Clare and Rev. Otto Raspe officiated. Mr. Mower died after a brief illness from the effects of a shock.

He was born in Brookfield, Mass. 79 years ago, and came to Vermont with his parents when a small boy. When a young man he went to Massacgusetts to work, and there married Miss Harriet Parker. She died in 1862, leaving one daughter, Mrs. E. B. Cobb of Stowe.

He enlisted in Company G. 53rd Massachusetts Infantry in September, and served one year.

He married, in November, 1864, at Hubbardston, Mass., Miss Lois M. Pollard. Two years later they came to the Kenfield farm in Morristown, and later bought the old homestead on West Hill, after which he bought the Morristown Corners Store, and seven years ran the store and post office at that place. He then returned to the farm, and in 1892 moved to Morrisville.

Mrs. Mower died 7 years ago. The deceased is survived by four children; Mrs. E. B. Cobb of Stowe, Miss Alice and Miss Anna Mower of this place, and Judge Edmund C. Mower of Burlington, and one brother, Elmore C. Mower of Burlington.
