Obituary

Fifield Bohonan, an aged and respected citizen, committed suicide at the home of his son, Leslie H. Bohonan, on Maple street Monday, May 1, and the funeral was held from his late home on Wednesday, Rev. Robert Hazeltine officiating, assisted by Rev. John A. Lawrence. Interment was in the family lot in Highland Cemetery. Mr. Bohonan was 84 years old and had been a great sufferer during the winter, and it is thought that by reason of his long suffering his mind had become unbalanced. Mr. Bohonan was a veteran of the Civil war and a member of Waterson post, No. 45, G.A.R., and besides the son, with whom he had made his home for many years, he is survived by one brother, who resides in Lowell, Mass.
