January 9, 1891
Henry Church, a well known resident of this town, died Friday at his home of a complication of diseases. Mr. Church was in the sixty-fifth year of his age and has not been well for several years but for the past few months has been declining. It had been only a few weeks however since he was able to be around the village, but for several days past his friends have not expected he would live long.
The deceased was born in Ohio where he lived for several years when he moved to Marlboro and subsequently to this town where he has made his home for many years. He was an old soldier having served in the war returning from the same somewhat broken down. He was a member of Company I, 8th Vt. Infantry. He was one of the charter members of C. B. Lawton Post No. 44 G.A.R. A few years ago he married Luthera Carpenter of West Dover and two children were born. One of them, a boy, is living. He received a pension which was nearly his only means of support as he was able for some time to do very little work. Mr. Church has two sisters living in the West, one a Mrs. Fox in Minnesota and the other a Mrs. Ames in Michigan also one brother, Wheeler Church who lives in Pownal, Vt. Mrs. Ames and Mr. Wheeler Church were present at the funeral which was held from the Methodist church Monday, Rev. L. P. Tucker officiating. The burial took place in the Rice cemetery in West Dover. Many members of the G.A.R. attended the funeral in a body. Much sympathy is felt for the wife and child which are left to mourn his loss.
