Obituary

WAITES RIVER -- George Mills passed quietly to rest Saturday, July 6, after a long illness. He was born in Stowe March 11, 1831, and served faithfully three years during the Civil War, in the 10th Vermont regiment, Co. G., as a volunteer

In 1866 he was married to Asenith Natt, who has been a dutiful and faithful companion. Five sons survive him, namely, Fred and Bert, of Montpelier, Harry, of this place, Frank, of Vershire, and Carl, of Worcester, Vt. ., also a brother, Joseph, in Idaho, and two sisters, Mrs. Joseph Richardson, of Elgin, Minn. and Mrs. C. S. Parkhurst, who has helped care for him the past year.

During the last few years Mr. Miles has been failing gradually, and has been a great sufferer. He leaves a host of relatives and friends to mourn his loss. The funeral was held at his late home Monday, July 8th, at 3 o'clock, and was conducted by Rev. O. L. Barnard. Interment was in the family lot in the Waits River cemetery.

Much sympathy is extended to the bereaved family, from their many friends.
