Obituary

Royal Plummer Benjamin died Friday evening at his home after a long illness following a shock which he suffered in August. Mr. Benjamin was born in Marshfield in 1804 and was married to Mary Brown of Wrightsville in 1861. Mrs. Benjamin died last October and this is thought to have hastened the decease of her husband. For over twenty years Mr. Benjamin was employed in the Lane Manufacturing shops and after that was in the restaurant business, giving up active life about six years ago. He was a Civil war veteran and a member of Brooks post, G.A.R. He is survived by three brothers, David and Joseph of Marshfield and George of California. The funeral was held from his late home this afternoon, Rev. Ward R. Clark officiating.
