Obituary

EAST CORINTH

Death of Bliss D. Beede, a Veteran of the Civil War.

Bliss D. Beede died at Martin Dexter's in Topsham, July 15, aged 73 years, 3 months and 16 days. The deceased was the son of Alvah and Ruth (Carr) Beede of West Corinth, and was the seventh in a family of thirteen children. He married Rosanna (Smith) Philbrick and four children were born, Frank A., who now lives on the old place in Orange; Alice (Mrs. Andrew Morrison of Topsham); Walter L., of Chelsea and Cora ( Mrs. Fred A. Eastman of Orange).

At the opening of the war of the rebellion, Mr. Beede enlisted and served in Co. G, 1st Vermont artillery. At the close of his first three years' enlistment, he re-enlisted for the second and third and served one year. Mr. Beede, it has been said, was a most excellent soldier, and he was also an industrious man and kind husband and father. Since his wife's death and for the past four years, Mr. Beede has made his home at Mr. Dexter's. The greater part of his life was spent in the town of Orange, about two miles from the Center. With his death, another of our old citizen soldiers has gone, and an ancient landmark of a former generation has disappeared.

Funeral services were held July 17 at Andrew Marston's and burial took place at Orange Center, Rev. J.C. Wright officiating.
