Funeral of W. W. McAllister Monday – Died in Johnstown, Pa.
William W. McAllister passed away Friday night at Johnstown, Pa., where he, with Mrs. McAllister, had gone to pass the fall and winter months with relatives. The cause of death, which was very sudden, was heart trouble. The body was brought to Waitsfield, reaching here Monday forenoon, and the funeral services were held in Masonic hall at 2 o'clock that afternoon, Rev. W. A. Remele officiating. Interment was in Irasville cemetery. The bearers were J. G. Brown, D. H. Skinner, H. W. McAllister, R. W. McAllister, G. O, Stokes and C. M. Richardson. At the cemetery the services were under Masonic charge, the ritual work being given by Walter C. Joslin.
Mr. McAllister was born in Waitsfield Nov. 8, 1844. His parents were William and Anna Lavone (Green) McAllister. He was a veteran of the Civil war, having enlisted from Barre when at the age of 20 in the third Vermont light artillery. He was a member of Ainsworth post, G. A. R., until their disbanding. He had served as commander of the post in 1891.
Nov. 5, 1870, he was united in marriage to Miss Elizabeth Duff of Lyons, Ia., and they were parents of three sons. In the winter of 1891 they were called by death to part with their oldest son, William, and their youngest son, Charles. A few years later death took their other son. Then again their hearts were broken when the news came Nov. 24 that their only grandson, Harry W. McAllister, had been killed Oct. 20 in France when in the service for his country. Much sympathy is felt for Mrs. McAllister in her lonely bereavement.
Mr. McAllister was a blacksmith and always followed this business until about two years ago. He was a good neighbor and friend.
Those from away who attended the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. William Bence, who had charge of the body from Johnstown, Pa., Mrs. Ella Brown Bailey, Mrs. George McAllister, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph G Brown from Montpelier and W. H. Marshall from Middlesex.
