Obituary

Last Saturday, the 14th inst., Mr. Loren F. Pratt of Cuttingsville, died very suddenly of heart disease. He was one of our most respected citizens and, we are pleased to add, a christian gentleman. Mr. Pratt was born in this town 68 years ago the 19th of March. He has been in poor health since coming out of the army where he served nearly through the late war. He has had 14 children born to him, 9 of whom survive him, viz., 6 sons and 3 daughters. The funeral was held at the church in Cuttingsville on Monday at 2:30 p.m., Rev. G. W. Wright preaching the sermon, Rev. Crozier assisting in the service. A large congregation gathered to show their sympathy, among which were about 20 members of the G. A.R. Much sympathy was expressed for the widow, who has been in feeble health for years, and notable to go to the burial.
