Obituary

BARRE
Death of Ezra S. Burnham, a Former Resident of Stockbridge

Ezra S. Burnham, formerly of Stockbridge, but during the past eight years a resident of this city, died early Wednesday morning after an illness of several months, aged 58 years. The cause of death was a complication of diseases from which Mr. Burnham had been a sufferer during the past year. He was a travelling salesman and had been able to continue his duties up to last August, but from that tine his health failed rapidly until the end came yesterday morning. He is survived by a wife, one daughter, Irene B. and a sister. The deceased was a communicant of the Universalist church of this city and universally esteemed. He was a veteran of the Civil War. Prayer will be said at the house on Park street by Rev. Effie K. M. Jones Friday, and the body taken to Stockbridge for interment.
