The community was pained on Wednesday to learn of Mr. Joseph N. Covey's sudden death. He had been in feeble health since winter, but had been about his home, a mile south of the village on Monday as usual. That night he was seized with pneumonia and after a day's suffering passed away. He moved here from West Brattleboro nearly two years ago, and in his brief life among us had been respected. He was a member of Birchard Post, G. A. R., having served in the 9th Vermont regiment. Apparently his age was about 65. There are left in his family a widow and five sons, one of whom resides in Brattleboro, one in New York, two in Halifax and one in this town.
