Obituary

The remains of Martin Conland were brought to Brookfield on Tuesday for interment. His daughter, Onie, and her husband, Mr. R. Scott, accompanied them. There was a brief service at the grave, conducted by Rev. C. H. Morse, the severe storm preventing extended exercises. Mr. Conland was over 80 years of age at the time of his death. He was an old resident of Brookfield, having lived here most of his life, until two years ago, when he went with his family to South Medford, Mass. He is known as one of the “forty-niners,” who went ot California in the days of gold discoveries there. He was distinguished for his honesty, industry, genial affability and apt wit.
