Well Known Jericho Man Dead.

Nelson A. Prior died at his home at Riverside Tuesday morning, aged 60 years, nine months and seven days, of typhoid pneumonia. The funeral was attended Thursday, Rev. C. P. Taplin officiating. The burial was in the family lot in the cemetery in this village. G. W. Pianck had charge of the arrangements.

Mr. Prior's life had been principally passed in Jericho and the neighboring town of Essex. He was a mechanic of no mean ability, a good citizen, genial and hearty in his intercourse with his fellow citizens, a kind and generous father and a good husband. He was a member of Company I, 6th Vermont volunteers, enlisting from Essex and serving four years in the war of the rebellion.

Nelson Abner Prior was born in Cambridge, this state, and was the last of a family of nine born to Alvah and Experience Austin Prior. A widow and two sons, Will E. of Burlington and Jed T. Of this town, survive him. They have the sympathy of all of their acquaintances.
