DEATH OF DANIEL PRINCE

Daniel Prince died Thursday morning at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Fred Putnam, in the west part of town, at the age of 86. He was for many years a resident of Johnson, and much respected by all who knew him. He faithfully served his country in the Civil War, and was a prisoner at Libby Prison for some nine months. As a result of this he came home so broken in health he had been feeble ever since, and confined to his bed since Dec. 23.

The deceased was born in Johnson, May 23, 1830. He was married May 16, 1859 to Louise P. Balch of Johnson. who died Aug. 6, 1862. To them were born two children, Minnie, who died at the age of 7 years, and Louise with whom he has lived the past 15 years. He was again married on Nov. 19, 1869, to Fidelia E. Balch, of Waterville, who died Sept. 27, 1894. Of the nine children born to this union, five survive. They are as follows: Myron, of Watertown, Mass, John, of Rockland, Mass., Mrs. May Spaulding, of Hardwick, Mrs Hannah Tillison, and Miss Freda Prince of Randolph.

Mr. Prince enlisted as a private in Co. A, 8th Vermont Regiment of Infantry Volunteers, under Captain McFarland of Waterville. He later served as orderly under Col. Palmer, of Montpelier. He received his discharge May 16, 1865.

The funeral was held Sunday at 1 p. m. at his late home, and was conducted by Rev. F. W. Hazen. Interment was made in Evergreen Ledge Cemetery. H. M. Maxfield was funeral director, the bearers were: Myron Prince, Joseph Spaulding, Harry Tillison, and Plummer Fletcher.
