Alonzo Hoyt

Hoyt, Alonzo - born in Tunbridge, Vt., 22 April, 1839, son of Enoch and Polly (Towns) Hoyt. He was a soldier of the Civil War, a member of Co. "D", 7th Reg't. Vt. Vols. He died of valvular heart disease at his home in Felchville, (Reading) Vt., 4 July, 1924 (age 85 years, 2 months, 12 days). FELCHVILLE, VT NEWS: 15 June, 1883: "As Alonzo Hoyt was coming to the village on Monday a.m., driving a yoke of oxen and leading a horse attached to a buggy, the horse took fright, threw Mr. Hoyt down and the buggy passed over him. The horse then ran down the hill, which was very steep. At the foot of the hill he jumped down an embankment, ten feet and landed in Silas Robinson's garden in a rather demoralized condition. No serious injury to the horse or buggy. -- 2 Oct., 1913: "Alonzo Hoyt has sold his farm and purchased D. C. Freeman's house on lower Main St. Felchville. Mr. Freeman & family go to Corlina, Calif., 9 Oct.. Much regret is expressed at losing this family from the community. Mr. Freeman closed his labors in E. B. Watkins' store Saturday night." -- 11 July, 1924: "Glen Hoyt of Worcester, Mass., and Mrs. O. W. Stoughton of Ludlow, Mass., were called here by the critical illness of Alonzo Hoyt. Mr. Hoyt was twice married. After the death of his first wife, he married Miss Hattie Vittum of South Reading, who has been his devoted companion throughout a long period of ill health. His son, Glenn Hoyt of Worcester, Mass., two granddaughters, a grandson, and several nieces and nephews, also survive him. He was a successful farmer until ill health caused him to sell his farm and was highly respected by all our citizens. Funeral services were held Monday afternoon, Rev. Mr. Lauderville officiating. Mrs. Anna Woodward, Elton Davis, Dr. & Mrs. O. W. Stoughton of Massachusets, were among the relatives to attend the funeral of Alonzo Hoyt."
