Obituary

The people of Bethel village were very much surprised Tuesday afternoon to learn that F. H. Marks was found dead in bed about 11 o'clock that morning. The cause of his death was supposed to be heart trouble. Mr. Marks always lived in town, was the son of Seneca Marks, one of the most prominent men in town fifty years ago and F. H. Marks has also been very prominent in town affairs, has been lister a great many years, selectman and represented the town in the legislature in 1888.
