Death of Alexander Crowell Alexander Crowell died Friday morning from heart trouble after a short illness of a few days at the house of his son, Guy. Mr. Crowell is one of the oldest residents of Barnard and has been a prosperous and industrious farmer. It will be remembered that in 1881, Mr. Crowell shot the celebrated Barnard panther near his home.
He married Miss Bowen and from this union there were born seven children, five now living – Mrs. Ida Haddock of Connecticut, Edgar and Rollin of Barnard, Mrs. Louise Brownell of Royalton and Guy of East Barnard.
The funeral was held at the home Sunday at 2 p.m., Rev. J. G. Haigh of South Royalton officiating. Burial was the family lot at Barnard. Truly it can be said that a good man has gone to rest.
