Death of L. D. Leavitt
Death removed from earthly scenes Wednesday night, April 8, Levi Dudley Leavitt with acute Bright's disease. He was an honored citizen of this place and a soldier of the Civil war.
He was born on Broad Brook in November, 1838, and was twice married. His first wife was Miss Davis of Royalton, who lived only a few months. For his second wife he married Miss Abbie Moore, who passed away a few years ago. By this union they had one son and three daughters.
For the last few years his youngest daughter has been with him and tenderly cared for him. He was a kind neighbor and a good citizen and has held several public offices. He was a kind husband and a very indulgent father, always looking for the welfare of his children.
Besides his children he leaves two brothers and one sister and nine grandchildren.
The funeral was held at his late home Friday at 1 p.m., Rev. Fred Daniels of Fairfax officiating. Burial was in the cemetery at East Barnard beside his wife. Thus we see another soldier has gone to rest.
