Obituary

WEST BARNET

Eleazer Dole Morrill, one of the oldest inhabitants of the town of Barnet, passed away Jan. 25, after a lingering illness of chronic Bright's disease, at the advanced age of 82 years. He was born in Danville ion1815, and was one of a family of nine children, three of whom survive him. At the age of 24 he married Olive Heath. Four children were born to them, all of whom still live and have large families. He sent two sons to the war and enlisted himself in Company I, 8th Regt. Vt. Vols., where he served during a large part of the war. He received no wounds but his health was greatly impaired, which became more apparent as old age advanced. He was pensioned at the rate of $24 per month. He had always been an honest, industrious, hard working man, and leaves behind him a large circle of friends.
