Death of Dwight S. Cleveland, a Well Known Resident of the Town

Dwight S. Cleveland died at his home in this place Sunday evening. He had been confined to the house for several days but was not supposed to be in immediate danger. The funeral was held at the house this afternoon at 1 o'clock, the Rev. S. H. Smith, of Richford, officiating. Mr. Cleveland was born in Georgia February 26, 1826 and moved to this town in early life where he made his home. He married Elizabeth Manley, and two children, a son and a daughter, were born to them, the son dying in early manhood. Mr. Cleveland enlisted in CO. B, 6th Vt. Vols., and took part in the battle and siege of Petersburg. At the close of the war he returned to the place where he held the office of constable and collector of taxes for many years. Mr. Cleveland is survived by his wife and daughter.
