South Woodbury: Funeral of Frank Batchelder Held At Church

The funeral of Frank Batchelder, who died Friday, March 8, after a weeks illness with pneumonia, at the home of L. H. Beaulac, was held last Monday at the church, Mrs. Isabel Ewen of Barre officiating, assisted by the pastor, Rev. M. W. Hale.

Mr. Batchelder was the son of Jerry and Eliza Batchelder, and was born in the town of Woodbury in August 1851. With the exception of a few years spent in Dakota, he has resided in this town his entire life.

When a mere youth he enlisted in Co. H., 4th Vermont regiment, and was wounded in the right wrist.

In 1888 he was united in marriage to Mrs. Mary Sabin, who died five years ago. . One child was born to them, Harry Clement. The deceased is also survived by a sister, Mrs. Frank Gonyeau, of Fort Ethan Allen, who was with him during his last illness, and also a brother, Alonzo, of Valley City, N. D.

In later life Mr. Batchelder was the general proprietor of the Batchelder House at Sabin Lake, which was largely patronized.

He was a worthy member of the G.A.R., and the F. & A. M., and leaves a large circle of friends and acquaintances. the funeral was largely attended, and there were many beautiful floral tributes from friends, relatives, and organizations to which he belonged. A quartet rendered two selections during the services, "Beautiful Isle of Somewhere", and "Sweetly Sleep".

Much sympathy is extended the bereaved ones in their deep affliction.
