GEORGE W. PERRIN'S FUNERAL
Service For Last But One Barre Veteran of Civil War.
The funeral of George W.Perrin, last but one of the Civil war veterans in Barre, was held at 2 o'clock Saturday afternoon from the Hedding Methodist church, Rev. Lawrence H. Blackburn, pastor of the church, officiating.
Among the many friends and relatives who attended the service was John E. Rollins of Windsor, former Barre man who was a comrade of Perrin's in the Civil war, and who is now 91 years of age. Mr. Rollins lived until recently at 165 Washington street.
Many beautiful floral tributes graced Mr. Perrin's bier, in token of the respect and recognition that has been his during his retired life in Barre. At the Elmwood cemetery, where he was laid away in the family lot, three shots were fired in military salute over the veteran's grave.
The pall bearers were Fred E. Cutts, Charles Perrin, George Douglass and Clarence Gladding, nephews and near relatives of Mr. Perrin.
A large number of Barre people attended the services, and besides Mr. Rollins there were several from out of town, including two nieces, Mrs. Effie Jamieson of Providence, R.I., and Mrs. Eva M. Geen of Chicago, Ill.
