Former Newport Resident Dead
The following taken from a Billerica newspaper will be of interest to friends of the late Alden Dane in this, his native town. He was on his way to take the train in Lowell for Newport, when he was taken suddenly ill and died at the home of the physician, Dr. Maurice Buck without regaining consciousness. The funeral services were held at his home in Billerica but interment was in the family lot of the Lowell cemetery. He was a veteran of the civil War, entering in the quota from his native state of Vermont. For years he had been a member of the G.A.R. and was also connected with the Billerica Veteran Association from its formation. The last sad rites were in charge of the G.A.R., who sounded the last taps for their comrade.
After the war Mr. Dane settled in Billerica in 1872 and was known and respected by everyone. He served the town in various capacities, as member of the board of selectmen, and superintendent of the town farm. He engaged in the milk business for years and had several farms to take his product to the Boston market.
For many years he had spent the winters with his niece, Mrs. John Enos, in Newport, and was on the way here, when death overtook him.
