Death of John P. Buzzell, a Civil War Veteran

John P. Buzzell, who lived near West Burke on the road toward Barton, died Sunday, March 4. Mr. Buzzell was a veteran of the Civil War and served the most of the time of the war. He was a member of the G.A.R. Post at West Burke. Mr. Buzzell had resided in town several years. He lived on the North Ridge until a few years ago, when he sold his farm and bought the place where he died. He was a good citizen and neighbor and had many friends. His wife died last fall. His nearest relatives re a son in the West and we think there is a daughter. The funeral service was at the G.A.R. hall at West Burke Thursday afternoon, Rev. G. W. Douglass being the officiating clergyman and burial was in the family lot at West Burke.
