Obituary

Harvey W. Brown, the postman, died last Sunday evening at his home on Ridge street, of cancer of the stomach, aged fifty-two years. Mr. Brown was born in Middlesex, and before he entered the post-office service he was in the employ of the Lane Manufacturing Company. He served in the Tenth Vermont Regiment. It was a curious coincidence that Stephen Stewart, a member of that regiment, whose death is noted elsewhere, should be buried the same day. For the past eleven years Mr. Brown has been a faithful and efficient carrier and his death brings genuine sorrow to a large circle of friends. In 1865 Mr. Brown was married to Helen Magoon of Barre who died eight years ago, and the following year he was married to Viola Lombard of Plainfield, who survives him. He leaves one sister, Mrs. R. P. Benjamin of this city. His funeral was held on Tuesday afternoon, Rev. J. Edward Wright officiating. The post-office carriers and the members of Vermont Lodge of Odd Fellows, of which the deceased was a member, attended in a body. The burial was in Green Mount Cemetery.
