Death of A. P. Osborne
On Dec. 6, Alverton P. Osborne, a life long resident of this town and on of the three surviving Tunbridge veterans of the Civil war, passed away after a prolonged illness.
Born in Springfield, N. H., in 1846, one of twelve children, his early years were spent in Sunapee, from where he enlisted at the age of 17 years, and served until the close of the war. In 1869 he settled in Tunbridge where he married Ellen M. Stewart. The union was blessed with two children, Goldie May, and Albert Arthur. Both of whom he long outlived. His life was that of an industrious, devoted husband and father. His widow and one sister, Mrs. Carrie M. Dole of Georgetown, Mass., survive him.
Interment was in Branch View cemetery, where he was borne by the Sons of Union Veterans, who conducted the service and whose sounding of taps bade farewell to an ardent patriot. Services at the home were conducted by the Rev. Mr. Case.
Those from away to attend Mr. Osborne's funeral were a sister, Mrs. Dole of Georgetown, Mass., a niece Mrs. Chapin of Cambridge, Mass., Mr. and Mrs. Ora Grant of Hanover, N. H., Mr. and Mrs. Herman Kibby and Mr. and Mrs. Fred Smith and Mrs. Alexander of South Royalton and Allen Smith of White River Junction.
