The remains of Mrs. Lewis C. Bell, who died in her home in South Boston Friday, were brought here on the Mail Train Monday afternoon, accompanied by her daughter, Miss Mille Bell, and were taken for interment in the West cemetery, beside the bodies of her husband and four children, George Bell, John Bell, Charles Bell, and daughter Cora.
The family left Middlebury about 22 years ago, for Boston, since all except Miss Millie Bell has died in that city. Lewis C. Bell, the husband and father, who died last, was a veteran of the war, and a member of Company B., 11th Vermont Infantry volunteers. There is widespread sympathy for Miss Bell, the youngest and only survivor of the family.
