Frank G. Putnam

Frank G. Putnam, for several years a respected citizen of Morrisville, died last Friday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Mary Aikley, in the Tift Block, on lower Main Street. The funeral services were held Monday morning at 10 o'clock at the Universalist Church, the Rev. George F. Morton officiating. Burial took place at the Barnes Cemetery in North Hyde Park. The bearers were three grandsons, Harold and Guy Moore, Henry Stone, and a nephew, Hollis Putnam.

Those from out of town to attend the funeral were Mrs. Glen Stone, and son Henry from Springfield, Vt., Harold Moore of Boston, and a grand-daughter Mrs. A. B. Stearns of Johnson.

The deceased was born in Underhill, 81 years ago, on Aug 9, one of 12 children, and the last survivor, born to Asa and Betsey Gallup Putnam. Nine of the other children lived to be over 75 years of age. He was united in marriage on Aug. 12, 1866, to Ellen Stowell of Hyde Park, who died 32 years ago, on the same day and month. All of their married life was spent in Hyde Park. Five children were born to them, two of whom, Mrs. Glen Stone and Mrs. Mary Aikley survive. He also is survived by 12 grandchildren, and 19 great grandchildren.

The deceased was a Civil War Veteran, having served for over four years. He had been in poor health for several years, and had failed rapidly in the past three months. He was a generous and kind hearted gentleman, and will be missed by a large circle of friends.
