Obituary

Lucian C. Farnham

Lucian C. Farnham died at about two o'clock yesterday morning at his home, 280 North street, following three strokes of paralysis, the first of which he suffered in May and the last one about two weeks ago. Mr. Farnham made a partial recovery from the first shock and was able to be out for a time, but had been confined to the bed since early in July.

Mr. Farnham was born 74 years ago in Williston, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Josiah Farnham. He served with Company A, Eighth Vermont volunteers, in the Civil War. He married Miss Elizabeth Ladue at her home in Milton on January 2,1860, and they made their home there until 1887 when they moved to this city where they have since resided. Four sons were born to Mr. and Mrs. Farnham. Besides his wife he is survived by two brothers, J. A. Farnham of St Albans and D. B. Farnham of Colchester. Mt. Farnham's jolly disposition had made for him a large number of friends and he was a patient sufferer throughout his illness.

Following prayers at the late home Saturday morning, the remains will be taken on the 10:30 train to Milton, where the funeral will be held at St. Anne's Church with interment in the family lot in the Catholic cemetery.
