Death of Elmer A. Emery
Elmer A. Emery, of Pomfret, a veteran of the Civil war, died at his home Wednesday morning, in his 68th year. He had been ailing for several years, but had not long been confined to the house. His children were all near him at the time of his death.
Mr. Emery was born in Reading, where he married Miss Christiana Page, a Pomfret girl, who survives him. About 12 years ago they moved to Pomfret, and for 36 years have lived on the farm on the Cloudland farm road, where he died and where eight of their ten children were born.
Mr. Emery was a successful farmer and a good business man, and accumulated considerable property, owning the Darling farm and several other places in Pomfret. He was highly respected in Pomfret and in this village, of which he seemed almost like a resident.
Mr. Emery enlisted in the Second Vermont regiment and served three years, taking part in many important engagements.
The surviving children are Harriet E., wife of Norman Case; Edwin P., Mattie D., wife of Charles E. Woods of Woodstock; William H., of Bridgewater; Henry W., who lives on the Darling farm; Mrs. Mary L. Hudson, of Boston, and John and Christina, who live at the homestead. The funeral service will be held at the house in Pomfret this (Saturday) afternoon at 2 o'clock.
