Obituary

BRANDON
Death of Hiram Fifield in Boston

Hiram Fifield, a veteran of Co. H, 5th regiment of Vermont infantry, died in Boston Wednesday. His remains were brought to Brandon on the flyer Friday afternoon. He will be buried by C. J. Ormsbee Post, G.A.R. This was his request before he died. He has suffered from lung disease ever since he returned from the army in 1861. He removed with his family to Boston two years ago, in order to be near his son who had a situation there in a store. Mrs. Fifield was injured a few months ago in an electric car accident and is suffering from the same at this time.
