DEATH OF ISAIAH BLAIR;
Isaiah Blair died Friday afternoon at 12:45, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Frank Boyce, on Elmore Street. Although he had been a sufferer from heart trouble for the past several years, death was due to an attack of acute indigestion from which he was taken ill about 8:15, the thursday evening previous.
The deceased was born in Serale, Can., Jan. 24, 1845, and was married in early life to Miss Edna Noe, who died March 25, 1913.
Mr. Blair was a member of Co. G., 11th Vermont Regiment, having enlisted on Aug. 24, 1864, and was discharged Aug. 25, 1865. He was a member of the local G.A.R.
He is survived by five children; Mrs. Frank Boyce and Isaiah Frank Blair, Jr., of this place, Mrs. Edward Caswell, and Willie Blair, of Greenfield, Mass., and Lewis Blair of Middlesex.
The funeral was held Monday afternoon from his late home, Rev. R. D. Cranmer, of the Universalist Church, officiating, and the remains were placed in the vault, and will be interred in Riverside cemetery in the spring. M. B. White acted as funeral director. The bearers were his three sons, and his son-in-law, Frank Boyce. The flowers were many and beautiful, including a cross of white roses from the grandchildren.
Mr. Blair was a long time resident of this town, and his courteous greeting made him many friends who regret his demise.
