Obituary

Isaac F. Hatch

Isaac Freeman Hatch, for 39 years a travelling salesman for the Tuttle company of Rutland, died suddenly Friday morning at his home, 74 Grant street. Mr. Hatch was 74 years old. He was born in West Ferrisburgh, but until 21 years ago lived in Vergennes. He was educated in the high school of Vergennes and attended Newbury Seminary and when the Civil War broke out enlisted in the First Cavalry, United States Volunteers, and received his discharge at the end of the war.

Mr. Hatch held several important town offices in Vergennes and at one time was a teacher there. Forty years ago he went with the Tuttle company as a travelling salesman and kept that position until a year ago last December, when he gave it up top go and live with his son, Dr. F.E. Hatch of Salisbury, Nd. He returned to Burlington last August. The employees of the company presented him with $40 as a parting gift, being $1.00 more than the number of years he was with them. He was a member of the Royal arch Masons, a Cairo Temple shriner and a member of the Knights Templar. He is survived by his wife and one son, Dr. F.E. Hatch of Salisbury, Md.

There was a prayer service at his late home Tuesday at ten o'clock. The funeral service, which was Masonic, was held in the Methodist Episcopal Church at Vergennes and burial was in the Vergennes cemetery.
