Death of George T. Manzer, Veteran of Civil War, Who Died Recently
The funeral of George T. Manzer, who died at the home of his brother, William F. Manzer, on Lake st. Friday morning at 3:20 o'clock, was held at the house Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock, the Rev. W.C. Bernard rector of Trinity Episcopal church, officiating. A quartette comprising Miss Grace Hogle, Miss Emily C. Carpenter, E.T. Wheelock, and Dr. F.H. Dunbar sang "Peace Perfect Peace" and " Lead Kindly Light." The burial took place at Riverside cemetery, the bearers being H.J. Lyon, Aaron Burdick, J.C. Judkins, J.A. Butler, Charles Carman and Thomas Oheere, all of Highgate. The funeral was largely attended by townspeople and many friends came from Highgate and St. Albans. George Theodore Manzer was born in this town April 7, 1824, the fourth in a family of nine children, five sons and four daughters, born to Abram and Ruth (Ayers) Manzer. In May 1860 he married Miss Martha E. Carman, of Highgate Springs, and to them two children were born, Mary H. and Homer C. Mrs. Manzer died when the son was about a year old. Her body was taken from the old cemetery here today for burial beside that of her husband in Riverside Cemetery. Mr. Manzer was one of the old residents of Highgate, having lived there for the past thirty-four years, coming to the home of his brother in this place early this spring. He was a veteran of the Civil War. He was a life-long Democrat and always a warm advocate of the principles of that party. He was a well informed man, was very active, and took a deep interest in current events up to the time of his last illness. Mr. Manzer is survived by a son Homer C. Manzer, of St. Albans, travelling auditor of the Central Vermont Railway Co.,; a daughter, Miss Mary A. Manzer, of St. Albans,; a brother William F. Manzer, of this place; and a sister, Mrs. E.D. Fuller, of St. Albans.
