George W. Flanders
This community was shocked Thursday morning by the sad news of the death of George W. Flanders at Hardwick on Wednesday, May 21. Mr. Flanders was born in East Calais, Jan. 28, 1838. His parents moved to Stannard when he was quite young and for many years that was his home. He was a soldier in the Civil war, member of Co. C. 3D Vt. Vol., and served three years. While there he contracted rheumatism from which for many years he ass been a great sufferer. In 1889, his disease attacked him in such form as to confine him to a wheel chair for five years, there after a time he recovered so that by the aid of a cane he could move about the house and street.
In 1887, Mr. Flanders moved his family to this place where they have made it their home with the exception of three years spent in Stannard. About two months ago he was taken sick with grip complicated with heart disease. In spite of many years of suffering he was a man of cheerful disposition and even when suffering the worst there was no complaint. He was a man strictly honest in business dealings, a kind father and husband, a good neighbor.
Funeral services were held here Saturday at the M. E church, Rev. N. A. Ross officiating. The services were in charge of A. Perrin and interment was at Pleasant View cemetery in Stannard beside a son and daughter who were called some years ago. There remain to mourn his loss his wife, Mrs. Jane Flanders, two daughters, Mrs. George Batten, Mrs. B. R. Russell, one small grandson, two sisters, Mrs. Polly Cole of this place and Mrs. S. D. Dow of Greensboro. The deceased was a member of A. E. Burnside post, No. 6. G.A.R.
