Obituary

Death of Jeremiah C. Manning

The death of Jeremiah C. Manning, aged nearly 82, occurred at the home of his youngest daughter, Mrs. Frank Buttles, on Central street, Friday at 6 p.m. Mr. Manning suffered an attack of flu about six weeks ago, from the effects of which he failed rapidly.

Mr. Manning was born in Poultney, April 10, 1847, the oldest of the children born to Martin and Prudence (Gowey) Manning) At the age of 22 years he went to Ripton to reside, which was his home until twenty years ago, when he removed to a farm in Bethel Lympus. For the past four years he has resided with Mrs. Buttles in this village.

Mr. Manning was a veteran of the Civil war, having served two and one-half years. He enlisted from Poultney in Co. I, 5th Vt. Vols., and took part in many engagements among them being the Battle of the Wilderness. He was wounded in the side, and later discharged with the rank o f corporal.

He was united in marriage with Jane Buttles of Ripton 59 years ago last October. Five children were born to them, all of whom are living, John J. Manning of East Randolph, Mrs. A. M. Ordway of East Granville, Clayde Manning of Montpelier, Allen Manning of Bethel Lympus and Mrs. Frank Buttles of Randolph. There are 17 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren. Mrs. Manning passed away ten years ago.

The funeral was held in the Methodist church Sunday at 1 p.m., Rev. A. A. Mandigo officiating. The remains were entombed and burial will be in Bethel Lympus cemetery later. The bearers were Clayde and Allen Manning, Frank Buttles and Clinton Bowen.

Those from out of town to attend the funeral were the children of the deceased and Mrs. Charles Davis and Mrs. Walter Doyette of East Granville, Mrs. Delia Goodwin of Lebanon, N.H., grandchildren and Sidney Buttles of Bethel.
