John N. Corbett

John N. Corbett, 85, a native of Monroe and a veteran of the Civil war, died yesterday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Edward A. Pratt of Pierce street, Greenfield, after an extended illness.

Prior to 1893, Mr. Corbett was employed as a carpenter in Brattleboro, Guilford and Marlboro., Vt., but in that year he went to Greenfield and entered the employ of F. B. Whitney. He served as a volunteer in Co. F of the 16th infantry during the Civil war and for many years had been a member of Edwin E. Day post, G.A.R, at Greenfield. He leaves his wife and four children, Mrs. Pratt of Greenfield, Cecil M. Corbett of Gainesville, Fla., Mrs. Wesley Whitney of Guilford, Vt., and Mrs. Alice Butler of Hinsdale, N.H., 15 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. The funeral will be held at his daughter's home in Greenfield Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock and the body will be taken to Brattleboro, Vt., for burial.
