After a lingering illness with rheumatism and general infirmities, George W. Bowles died last Thursday night at 9 o'clock at his home in Bennington. Deceased was born in Woodford, October 19, 1841. He was a faithful veteran of the Civil war for three years with his brothers, Henry, Charles and Frank. Mr. Bowles was a kind neighbor and had no enemies.

The funeral was largely attended from the church in his district last Sunday afternoon, members of the G.A.R. taking part, the burial being in the cemetery there. Deceased leaves a widow, one son, Edward H. Bowles of Cambridge, N. Y., one sister, Mrs. Nellie Stone and one brother, S.M. Bowles of Woodford. Verily a good man has found his long Rest.
