Obituary

The body of Richard Lewis Mosher, who died at his home in Strafford, Monday, Jan. 27, was brought to Sharon last Thursday afternoon, for interment in Pine Tree cemetery. The committal service was by Rev. Mr. Tracy of Strafford and the bearers were six members of the Strafford lodge, F. And A. M. Among relatives present at the funeral and interment were Philo Mosher of Sharon, a brother of the deceased, and Mrs. Clara Willey of Sharon, a cousin. Mr. Mosher, until his removal to Strafford some ten years ago, was a life-long resident of Sharon and ever a citizen esteemed for his manly qualities and never failing integrity and fidelity to every duty. He was a veteran of the Civil war and member of Sharon lodge, F. And A. M., the member so which sent a beautiful floral offering to the funeral in Strafford.
