David M. Bullock died at his home Friday night following a few daysí illness with grippe. Mr. Bullock was born in Readsboro Aug. 19, 1843, and had always made his home here with the exception of about 20 years residence in Hartford, Conn. He served three years in the Civil war, enlisting in Co. H, sharpshooters of Vermont. In 1871 he married Mrs. Mary Corey of Hartford, whose death occurred in Readsboro in 1897. Mr. Bullock was a member of C. D. Sanford post, G.A.R., of North Adams and Deerfield Valley Lodge, I. O. O. F, and Balance Rock lodge, F. And A. M. of Readsboro. Mr. Bullock will be greatly missed about town as he was well liked and had a pleasant smile for all and especially will be missed on Memorial day, as until two years ago he acted as drum major in the march to and from the cemetery. The past two years he has been unable to do this or to attend the lodges because of failing health and eyesight. He leaves one step-son, George Lee of Waterbury, Conn., and one sister, Mrs. Harriet Engalls, who made her home with him, and several nieces and one nephew.
The funeral was held at the house at 1:30 p.m. Monday and was in charge of the Odd Fellows. Rev. F. S. Weston officiated and burial was in the village cemetery.
