George Washington Blodgett died Monday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Bert Morrill, with whom he had resided the last six years. He has been in poor health all the time he had lived here, and since Thanksgiving been quite ill, although he was confined to his bed only since Friday.

He was born in Derby Line 75 years ago, and spent his early life in Stanstead, P.Q. At the age of 18 he enlisted in Company K., 10th Vermont Volunteers. He married Gertrude Green of Derby Line, who survives him, with four children, Mrs. Louis Laurence of Montpelier, Mrs. Bert Morrill, of St. Johnsbury, Percy of Montpelier, and Claude Blodgett of Victory. He lived for 12 years at South Ryegate, and until he came here had made his home in Montpelier for 25 years.

The funeral will be held from the Morrill home on Concord Avenue Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. F.B. Richards officiating.
