Obituary

The funeral of Timothy Blanchard, a veteran of the Civil War, was held from his late home at South Northfield Friday afternoon, Rev. C. C. Creegan officiating. W. W. Hartwell of the Sons of Veterans read the burial service of that order. Nicholas Lang, Leon Nadeau, Ray Hazelton and Neal Sylvester, members of Sorrell Maynard post American Legion, acted as bearers. Interment was in the family lot at East Roxbury. A firing squad from Norwich University fired a volley over the grave and taps were sounded. The deceased was born in Brookfield, April 17, 1840 and spent his early life in that place. At the outbreak of the Civil War in 1861, Mr. Blanchard went to Burlington and enlisted in the Vermont Cavalry and during the war with that outfit. He took part in 76 different battles. After the war Mr. Blanchard returned to Brookfield and married in 1866 Miss Julia Wardner of that town. To this union was born three daughters who survive, Mrs. Nellie Steele and Miss Lou Blanchard of Worcester, Mass., and Mrs. Charles Davis of Fitchburg, Mass. Mrs. Blanchard died many years ago. Mr. Blanchard married for his second wife, in 1901, Mrs. Anne Westmore of Williamstown, after which they went to Williamstown to reside on a farm where they remained for 13 years. They returned to South South Northfield 11 years ago. Mrs. Blanchard survives and with her daughter, Mrs. Thresher, cared for Mr. Blanchard during his illness. Aside from his wife and three daughters, the deceased is survived by seven grandchildren. Among those in town for the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. Charles Davis of Fitchburg, Mass.; Frank Thresher of St. Albans; Mr. and Mrs. Edward King of Georgia; Mr. and Mrs. H. F. Flint of Randolph.
