Obituary

Had Honorable Army Record

Edmund H. Bruce, aged 77 years, died at his home in Randolph early Monday morning after many years of impaired health. Mr. Bruce was born July 8, 1831 in Craftsbury, but moved to Brookfield when five years old where he remained until 38 years ago when he moved to Randolph where he had since resided. Fifty-one years ago he married Elizabeth Lyon of Brookfield, and to them were born three children, Mrs. Frank Williams of Hinsdale, N.H., Mrs. Charles Clough of Ashland, N.H., all of whom as well as Mrs. Bruce survive him. The deceased was a member of company F. 12th Vermont volunteers, in which he served 11 months, and he had an honorable record in the service. He was a member of U. S. Grant post, G.A.R., and actively engaged in all its interests, as long as his health permitted.
