Obituary

North Ferrisburg

Mrs. J. P. Kenyon went to Salisbury, Thursday, to visit her brother, Luther Harrington, who was very sick. He died Friday night. The funeral was from his home on Monday, Memorial day. Mr. Harrington was a Ferrisburgh boy, a son of Joeph and Amanda Harrington. He was one of a family of nine children, seven yet living. He was a soldier in the war of '61 and a member of the G.A.R. at Brandon, a pensioner at the time of his death. At 14 years of age he drove two rebels into camp with an empty rifle. They also had empty guns but did not suppose he had. His brother, Garrison, who died in this town two years ago was a member of the G.A.R at Vergennes. Memorial days seems appropriate for his burial.
