DEATH OF GEORGE BISHOP;
East Orange--George Bishop died at 3 o'clock Thursday morning at his home in the village. He had been in poor health for some time, and Tuesday evening was taken suddenly worse, and gradually failed until the end came.
For some time he resided on a farm in Washington, about a mile from the village, but a few months ago they moved into their new home in the village. He was a soldier of the Civil War, when he witnessed many hardships.
Funeral services were held at 10 o'clock at the church Saturday morning, Rev. Meek, of West Topsham officiating, interment in Washington. A large number of relatives and friends attended the service, testifying to the friendly feeling each and all had toward them.
He leaves, besides his wife, who has constantly cared for him, four brothers, three of whom three of them attended the funeral, and a sister, Mrs. Aaron Richardson of Washington, also, two sons, who with their wives were present, besides several grandchildren, who have the kind sympathy of all in their sorrow.
