Obituary

Alfred Norton

Alfred Norton died Tuesday morning at 3:30 o'clock at his home at 13 Howard street, aged 75 years. He had been a sufferer from a lingering illness of three years, and had been confined to his bed since last December.

Mr. Norton was born in Illinois, but spent his childhood in Pomfret. He came to Burlington to live 50 years ago. He was a veteran of the Civil War, enlisting in Company K, 3rd Vermont Volunteer Infantry, in July 1863. He was in 27 battles, among them the Wilderness, Cold Harbor and Gettysburg.

He is survived by his wife, who was Anna H. Edgerton, their marriage taking place in March, 1870; by one daughter, Mrs. Marie A. Curran of Worcester, Mass.; by four sons, George E. Norton of Rome, N.Y.; John e. Norton of Worcester, Mass., and Herbert H. Norton and Edward P. Norton of Burlington; and by one brother, Andrew H. Norton of Springfield, Ohio.

The funeral will be held at the house Thursday afternoon at two o'clock.
